​Vocational assessment is the selection of appropriate or suitable work or vocational options for a person having regard to a range of factors.

Factors which are often taken into account when selecting suitable vocational options include:

  • education
  • training
  • experience
  • the location where the person lives and the availability of work in that location
  • the person’s physical capacity for work
  • the person’s psychological capacity for work

The process of completing a vocational assessment may include a face to face interview or interview by telephone. In other circumstances an assessment by reference to a file of documents about the subject of the assessment may be appropriate.

At the bottom of this profile are brief details of a number of the experts that Expert Experts represents. Call our office to discuss your requirements and to obtain a recommendation that suits your needs and budget.
