Transferable Skills Analyses (TSA)
Prepared by Employment Specialists Scott McPherson and Carolyn Titterton, reports may be based on a file review and/or in-person interview and consider the individual’s education, training and experience as well as medical abilities, restrictions and limitations. Assessment tools may be used to determine the individual’s values, interests and aptitudes. If indicated, additional testing may be recommended to confirm an individual’s physical, cognitive and/or academic strengths and weaknesses. The individual’s vocational profile and transferable skills are identified and matched to information provided by Service Canada and the National Occupational Code in order to identify suitable employment options. General labour market information is included. The ensuing reports may be useful in the claims adjudication process and/or to inform clients regarding potentially suitable alternate occupations.
Reports are similar to TSA’s, however do not consider medical restrictions and limitations when identifying potential employment alternatives.
LMS reports provide detailed information regarding specific occupations and employment potential. Information is obtained from selected federal and provincial government sources, CCI’s internal resources, as well as directly from employers. Labour Market Surveys may include salary information as well as samples of current employment postings.
