A Transferable Skills Analysis (TSA) is a comprehensive inventory of any work, knowledge and competencies learned by an individual during his/her work or volunteer life or hobbies that can be transferred to other similar related jobs.
A TSA will summarize this information, with the view to provide recommendations for employment and job opportunities that would be appropriate given the individual’s accumulated transferable skills and experiences. A TSA not only considers a diverse range of transferable skills, but also gives consideration to physical and functional abilities. By considering both elements, we are able to assist injured workers to identify careers that are suitable and sustainable when career transition is required.
A TSA is helpful for those individuals who require:
- The identification of alternative occupations when an individual is unable to return to work to their pre-injury employment given their current health, skill level and abilities
- The identification of gaps where short training or skill enhancement could promote re-employment
Referral Details Required
- Detailed educational profile including formal and informal education, courses, certificates and licences
- Detailed vocational profile including work history, volunteer experience, vocational interests
We also collect the following information to ensure accuracy of TSA results:
- Clear and current statement of medical restrictions and limitations
Outcome of the Assessment
The outcomes and recommendations of a TSA report will address the following questions:
What are the top occupational choices that an individual could potentially move into quickly with little or no additional training, taking their current medical restrictions and limitations into consideration?
Based on the above analysis an outline and recommendation of appropriate next step is offered so as to better answer those questions (a functional capacity evaluation, labour market analysis, or other assessments).
The TSA is conducted by either a Certified Vocational Rehabilitation Professional (CVRP), Registered Rehabilitation Professional (RRP) or a Canadian Certified Vocational Evaluator (CCVE) who is specifically trained in this assessment process and may include the use of Quick Noc Pro.
