Strengths Tools

The strengths tool is a self-assessment questionnaire which aims to help you discover what skills you are strongest in. It is comprised of three sections – what you do well, what you do often and what you enjoy. It uses simple language, so could be useful with low literacy users, and asks you to answer questions based on a scale. After answering these three quizzes, you will be shown your strengths (e.g. Organised, hard worker, writing etc. and provided more information on these skills). Based on these strengths you can then see jobs, industries and apprenticeships that require these strengths to be used. (To further refine jobs/industries/apprenticeships to you, there are additional sections on the website that can be completed). The tool is available in English and requires an account to be made which needs an email address and UK post code.
