Career development and planning is the focus of vocational assessments. The purpose of vocational evaluation is to determine an individual's academic achievement, vocational interests, aptitudes and work habits. These are combined with work history and transferable skills so that realistic vocational goals can be identified. Students indecisive in career planning, dislocated workers or persons with functional limitations resulting from disabilities are a few examples of those who may benefit from a vocational evaluation.
Community Based Situational Assessment (CBSA) provides detailed information about an individual's performance and overall work habits. Positions are established with local employers on a temporary basis to provide a choice of sites based on vocational interest. A job coach is assigned to observe the individual's work habits during the full duration of the CBSA. Detailed information regarding the individual's performance and recommendations are provided to the individual so they may make realistic and rewarding career choices.
Employment search strategies (ESS) are provided one day per month in Palm Beach County.
