BESTest – employability skills assessment

BESTest – employability skills assessment

BESTest is our brand new psychometric test that will quickly, accurately and objectively measure a learner’s employability skills.

Use it with your study programme learners and to prepare learners for work experience and apprenticeships.

  • Identify and agree your learners’ baseline strengths and weaknesses, and then design tailored and personal learning plans based on those strengths and weaknesses
  • Achieve learner buy-in for enrichment activities
  • Accurately track distance travelled from the start to the end of their course

Developed by REED NCFE in conjunction with the University of Leeds Business School, ForSkills are now hosting the assessment with reimagined questions and colour-coded end reports.

On completion, learners receive a set of ten underlying scores that relate to employability skills indicators such as interview techniques and job search skills; and to personal qualities such as motivation and sociability – qualities that make all the difference with employers. They also receive an overall employability score.

Tutors and assessors will have access to group reports to compare their learners’ results.
