Part 1:
Independent Flexible E-Learning

The first step of your training is to complete the Occupational Ability E-learning course. The link to access this can be found in the invitation email.

Occupational Ability

(using Saville Assessment Swift Assessments)

This flexible E-learning course is made up of nine modules. You will need to set aside 4 – 6 hours to complete all modules before you attend the practical part of the course.

We recommend breaking this into several sittings so that you can take breaks between the content.

Your reference workbook covers all the content from the Occupational Ability E-Learning modules. Its purpose is to save you having to write lots of notes and can be used to support you in the Knowledge Checks and Assessments throughout.

Please note:

You will also need to complete practice aptitude assessments ahead of the practical part of the course. These are purely for practice and support your understanding of this type of tool; no scores or results are captured or shared.

You can access these assessments via the Oasys link in your invitation email.

Your Designated Consultant

Between the E-Learning and the practical part of the course, you have the option of checking in with your designated consultant whose email address is included in the invitation email you have received. You can use this call to clarify your understanding of the E-Learning content and ask any questions you might have about the practical part of the course.

You can also contact your designated consultant as you go through the E-Learning to check your understanding.

Occupational Ability

(using Saville Assessment Swift Assessments)

The practical part of the ability course follows a case study to hire either a Customer Support Assistant or a Senior Web Developer. 

First, we will conduct a job analysis to consider what is important to the role for which we are hiring. Then we will consider how to effectively measures those important skills and behaviors. 

We will also practice choosing appropriate norms (benchmark groups) and learn about what we need to do to run a testing session effectively. We will then have two opportunities to practice delivering feedback. First, to a candidate, and then to a hiring manager. 

We also revisit Reliability and Validity to consider how they practically apply to selection processes and how we can explain these principles in clear, non-technical terms to manage push-back from hiring manages.
