What are core skills?

Before we go on to explain what core skill tests are, lets look at an explanation of what core skills are.

Core skills are what give individuals the ability and the confidence to accept responsibility, to problem solve and to use spoken and written communication effectively.

All of these elements are what’s needed for an employee to perform effectively within an organisation.

What are core skill tests?

Core skills tests are valuable employment tests which can be used to assess an individual’s basic competencies across any job role. Essentially they can provide an overview of their skills and capabilities when it comes to literacy, communication and numeracy. These are core skills for any job role regardless of the industry or position.

Our core skill tests also cover the Microsoft Office suite of products and allow you to assess an individuals skills in using Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Outlook.

Each of the tests available are designed to determine whether or not an individual has the core skills needed.  The candidate’s responses are automatically marked and a point is awarded for each correctly answered question. Skipped questions or those that are not taken will result in no point being awarded.
