Employability Assessment & Planning in Rehabilitation & Educational Settings.
Farley, Roy C.; And Others
A model for employability development is introduced to improve employability assessment and planning programs in rehabilitation and educational settings. The major components of an employability assessment and planning program are vocational choice, job acquisition, and job retention. The model offers strategies for empowering the consumer and involving the consumer as a co-manager of his/her program. Assessment and planning strategies involve measuring vocational readiness, aptitudes, interests, vocationally relevant personality factors, work temperament, personal capacities, work values and needs, job seeking behavior, basic work habits and behavior, and on-the-job coping behavior. Organization and administration of an employability assessment and planning program require consideration of the statement of mission, organizational placement, personnel needed and their competencies, staff responsibilities, operational procedures, scheduling/unit capacity, length of assessment program, program activities, evaluation plan development, and reporting.
