Training and Career Needs Test

Training and Career Needs Test is an assessment tool developed by Training Body for the Employees Retraining Board, to facilitate users to have a preliminary understanding of their career aspirations, and assist them in selecting suitable training courses.

Format: The Test is a self-administrated online questionnaire containing 60 items. Users only need to answer all questions honestly and frankly basing on their personal views. In general, it takes about 20 minutes to complete the Test.

Theoretical Framework: The Test was designed by making reference to Self-Directed Search (SDS) assessment tool developed by John Holland, which was based on the theory that both people and working environment could be classified according to six basic types. SDS is a simple, practical tool that is suitable for people of different ages.

Result and Analysis: After completing the questionnaire, the system will assess the two more prominent personality types of the users, so as to identify the more suitable job types and training courses for them.
