9.5.1 Assessing Transferable Skills

A transferable skills analysis (TSA) is an assessment of the skills and knowledge a person acquires from the actual performance of a job and from learned situations, community, work and school environments.

TSA is most beneficial when assessing people who have a wide range of experiences, skills and employment history and who generally do not require retraining to re-enter the open labour market.

This tool is used to guide employers, rehabilitation service providers, Rehabilitation Coordinators and clients to define a person's skills and experience for new placements or positional changes.

A TSA can define a person's skills and experience for new job placements or a change in role with their current employer.
