Option 1: General Career Consultation
The individual who is interested in this particular option is encouraged and assisted to discuss his or her career, professional, educational or personality difficulty, problem or query in detail.
Option 2: Career Guidance Programme
This option is exceptional value for money. It incorporates the professional administration of Occupational and Vocational Inventories, a Battery of Aptitude Tests, an Interest Inventory, a Personality Type Profile, and a Multiple Intelligence Test.
Testing Sessions are offered and supervised bi-monthly in 4-hour testing blocks at pre-arranged venues for either private clients or groups. Refer to the for current testing dates and venues. Upon request, alternative dates can be arranged if sufficient interest is present, contingent upon availability.
Within 3 to 4 weeks after completing the tests (dependant upon the size of the group tested), each candidate meets privately with Mr. Paul Toal for a Career Guidance Discussion and personal review of their Detailed Report, complete with Graphical Presentation of Scores.
Occupational and Vocational Inventories... The Occupational and Vocational Inventories help people to identify general occupational areas and specific jobs, occupations and professions within them for which they have a significant level of interest, either realized or unrealized. Where relevant, the results of these tests are then compared with a Leaving Certificate Selection Chart as well as a School Subject Availability Chart.
Aptitude Tests... There are six separate Aptitude Tests which enable people to discover what general aptitudes they possess and the specific jobs, occupations and professions for which these aptitudes are a requirement.
Personality Type Profile... The Personality Type Profile enables people to identify their own type of personality and — with interpretation — the jobs, professions and occupations for which such personalities are best suited.
Multiple Intelligence Test... Intelligence comes in many forms. Although the Standard IQ Test is the most common means of measuring ability, it is limited in what it reveals. The IQ Test ignores other relevant intelligence strengths. The Multiple Intelligence Test uncovers eight key intelligences. Accompanied by skilled interpretation, knowing one's scores in these key intelligences provides valuable insight into the most personally effective learning and study methods, the most suitable work environments, and the most potentially satisfying jobs, professions and occupations.
3 to 4 weeks (dependant upon the size of the group tested), our
certified Career Guidance Counsellor presents a comprehensive report
detailing those jobs, courses, occupations, professions in which the
individual will experience the highest level of success and satisfaction
based on his or her Occupational and Vocational Interests, Aptitudes,
Personality Type Profile, Multiple Intelligence Scores, and other relevant
factors. The report then outlines strategies for effectively pursuing
such jobs, courses, occupations and professions.
Career Guidance... Within 3 to 4 weeks all data provided by the various tests and questionnaires are explained to and discussed with the Client in private. They are correlated to the Client’s personal circumstances; to educational and training facilities available to the Client; to employment opportunities at home and abroad; and to economic conditions in general. The client then takes their printed test results and reports with them, leaving a copy with Mr. Toal for on-going mentorship as required by the client.
