Getting Assessed

To get from one place to the other, you need to know three things:

  1. Where are you,
  2. Where do you want to go, and
  3. How to get there.

The same is true with career planning. A key step in establishing your information technology career plan is knowing where you are starting from. The GrowMe4IT Assessment establishes that baseline. Your personality can have a strong influence on what career options are best suited for you. We have you complete a personal type test so that you can make informed decsions about your career goals. We get you tested so that we know what your English proficiency level is.  We use that information to help you decide what your career goal is (what you want to be when you grow up).  You can then decide how much effort you want to put in to achieve that goal and if GrowMe4IT is right for you.

Personality Type

Personality Type

Your personality is one of the things that make you unique. Over the decades, research has shown that there are a variety of personality types. There are numerous personality type frameworks that help you to determine your personality type. Your personality drives your instinctive reaction to a situation. For some people, working on their personal development has made it possible for them to seperate their reaction to a situation from how they respond to that situation. Most people, with practice, can control themselves so that they respond to situation instead of just reacting. In that way they can regularly respond to a situation appropriately. If your personality is such that you often need to override your instinctive reaction to fit into your work environment, you will likely not be happy in there. For example, if you are a quiet introvert who thinks deeply about things, you will have a tough time regularly dealing with outgoing reactive sales people who follow their instincts.

Personality typing provides a framework that can make you more self-aware. Personality types are not points on the personality scale. Instead, they are bands. Knowing what personality type you are and where in that band you fit will help you understand yourself better.  As well, a lot of research has gone into suitability of personality types for various life roles, including jobs.  Therefore, you may be able to forecast if you are well suited for certain types of jobs. For example, system analysts regularly deal with a wide range of IT and business people within and outside their organizations.  If you really like to keep to yourself and have minimal interaction with others, being a systems analyst may not be for you. Instead, you may want to focus on a career in programming.  Or, if you have a strong interest in being a systems analyst, you know the areas you need to make changes to do well.

Language Assessment

Language Assessment

How strong are you in core English skills and knowledge? How good are your writing and speaking skills? How good are your reading and listening skills? The Common European Framework for Reference Languages (CEFR) is the international body that sets the standards for many of the world's languages, including English. The CEFR is one of the two pillars that the GrowMe4IT program is built on. We use CEFR tests to determine your level in each skill.  If English is not your first language, you are not a native English speaker. Many organizations require CEFR test results to show non-native English speakers are ready to work in English.

If you are a native English speaker, we use the CEFR self-assesment to understand you English proficiency. If you are not a native English speaker, we use the CEFR LinguaSkill online tests to determine where you sit within the CEFR international levels. In order to be effective in a Business English training environment, you need at be at the CEFR intermediate or higher level. In addition to establishing an English proficiency baseline, when appropriate, we use periodic LinguaSkills testing to document your progress in improving your English.

Evaluation

Evaluation

Once you know what you current employment situation is, what your English proficiency is, and what your personality type is, we can start the discussion of "what do you want to be when you grow up".  With an understanding of where you are at now and where you want to go, you can determine if you really want to make the effort to get there. If you want, the next step will be to set up a learning plan to build the foundation needed in your target career.

Once you have decided on persuing a learning plan,we can then set you up with your assigned tutor and begin that journey.
