self-assessment activity is an opportunity for you to spend some time
reflecting on your knowledge, skills and abilities as a literacy
professional in LBS. We hope that it will help you:
appreciate the scope of the work you do,
take stock of your professional work,
value what you do well and recognize the expertise you
identify any important gaps in skills and knowledge
that may exist,
start along a pathway to professional development and
order to get results that are as reliable as possible, it is important to
gather sufficient data. This take a bit of time. You can expect to spend
about 45 minutes on this assessment activity - but, fortunately, you don't
have to do it all at once.
Why would I spend 45 minutes on a self-assessment activity?
support your ongoing professional development, we would like to help you
think about what it takes to be a successful, effective literacy
practitioner, and, in a sense, hold up a mirror for you to see what you
really think about your own skills and abilities.

a certain level of professional knowledge is required;
there are certain necessary skills and abilities for
program development and program delivery;
the ability to keep up with the administrative
requirements of the job is important;
organizational and time-management skills as well as
the ability to work well with other literacy professionals is essential.

and skills in all these areas. As an added bonus, the tool will give you a
list of courses that are available on this site that match your personal
