Self-Assessment Tool for Potential Workers

This tool is in beta release We welcome your feedback

This is a self-assessment tool for people considering working in the NDIS. It will help you understand the people you might work with and what a role could look like.

This tool is focused on roles that work directly with people with disability. The questions are designed for you to reflect on your attitudes, values, and skills to decide if this work is a good fit for you. The results are based on your input and provide you with general guidance only. You can complete the tool as often as you like. 

Information for using for the tool

There are three sections to the tool:

  • The first section looks at your attitudes and values. You will be asked to rate how strongly you agree or disagree with a series of statements.

  • The second looks at some potential situations you might face when working in the disability sector. You will be asked to select what action you would take from multiple-choice options and asked how the scenario made you feel. 

  • The third section invites you to enter information about your lived and work experience that may be relevant to working in the disability sector.

Answer the questions as honestly as you can based on your first reaction.

At the end, you will be provided with suggestions on employment or work opportunities to consider and some next steps to take. Continue below to start the tool.
