Skills Audit

Practical Learning Activity

1. General Competencies for Human Resources: A Skills Analysis

As part of this subject, you are encouraged to complete a skills analysis to identify your strengths and areas for further development - specifically in relation to a supervisory position in Human Resources. The main purpose of the activity is to help you determine what HR general competencies you currently have, and what to work on. Then you can map a plan or draft a timeline around any of the competencies that you feel you need to further develop for a job in this area.

The following is a list of competencies that you can think about as a starting point.

Survey of Skills

To reflect on where you feel you might be at on a scale of 1 -10 (with 1 = needs considerable development through to 10 being no development necessary), please complete a skills analysis on these professional competencies by following the link below.

2. Setting Skills Development Goals: An Action Plan

Based on the skills analysis/survey you have completed for HR competencies, complete the template below which asks you to consider areas for development. You might want to also consider skills you saw mentioned in Position Descriptions and Job Advertisements and where you rate yourself on those. Please upload the template to your portfolio for future reference and also use the material to inform what you include in your student learning plan.


3. Essential Skills, Employability Skills and Study Skills: Self Assessments

As part of the entire Associate Degree Program you are encouraged to complete a range of these kinds of skills audits – with the purpose being to explore your strengths and areas for development across a broader range of areas than the discipline itself.

The main purpose of completing audits as you progress through the course is to ensure you can map out what you ‘have’ and ‘what you need’ to achieve your study, work and personal goals. What you learn from the audits can then guide what you include in your student learning plan.

To find and complete a broader range of skills audits, we encourage students to follow the link to the generic module on “Skills Analysis”.
