Preparing for Work Assessment (PfWA)

The Preparing for Work Assessment (PfWA) can be used to assess a jobseeker's readiness for work. It can be used to identify and fill any employability skills gaps, and see whether you're ready to enter today's competitive jobs market. The assessment covers basic maths and English skills, computer and internet skills, and how prepared you are for job searching and interviews. It also covers some necessary conditions for claiming benefits, like having a Universal Jobmatch account.

Download and fill in the Preparing for Work Assessment.

Once you're able to tick all of the 'yes' boxes, you're on the right track to finding a realistic local job.
