What is an Employability Assessment?

ECA have adopted the definition of Employability Assessment developed by the Aluca “TPD Working group”

”“A Life Insurance Employability Assessment is an assessment of a person’s vocational capacity based on their education, training and experience and within their medical functional capabilities”

Our consultants

All of our Employability Assessment consultants meet the recommendations of the Aluca TPD Working group

What does an Employability Assessment include?

The definition of an Employability Assessment recognises that vocational capacity must be matched to a person’s functional capacity.

Medical functional capacity is usually derived from evidence provided by medical professionals, and includes both physical and psychological/cognitive functioning.

If you require medical functional capacity to be assessed we recommend our physical and psychological functional assessments designed to suit the requirements of the TPD claims process.

Depending on your requirements, the issues addressed by an ECA vocational assessment report will include:

  • Review of documentary material relevant to the physical capacity for work of the subject of the assessment.
  • Review of documentary material relevant to the psychological capacity for work of the subject of the assessment.
  • Assessment of education, training and experience and transferable skills
  • Selection of vocational options that are suitable having regard to capacity for work and other vocationally relevant factors

Each ECA Employability Assessment report contains a careful and detailed analysis of the match between the subject and the vocational option identified as suitable and includes all of the information areas identified by the TPD Working Group:

  • Demographics
  • Policy details
  • Purpose of assessment
  • Method of assessment
