the assessment tool

An assessment tool is to be used to assess the women’s background and progress throughout their participation in the Jobpackage course. It is designed to be filled out by each woman involved in the courses/activities:

  • once at the beginning of each woman’s involvement with the project
  • and a number of additional times throughout her involvement in the course (at least once at the end of the woman’s participation)

It is important that the assessment tool:

  • Measures progression on the kind of skills and competences the course is focusing on supporting
  • Includes the same questions at the beginning and at the end of the course
  • Uses clear language.

The assessment tool is perceived as an integral part of the jobpackage concept, evaluation and reflection on the women’s progression. It is an essential tool to evaluate the achieved results and to reflect on methods to strengthen the individual woman’s progress, motivation and positive prospects for change.

The involvement of local companies and workplaces, jobcentres, local/regional integration, social and healthcare authorities in the Jobpackages Councils indicates that they are committed on both an advisory and practical level, including:

  • Serving as local advisory boards/councils for the the planning and implementation of Jobpackages for women, giving suggestions to relevant activities in accordance with the general needs and requirements of the women.
  • Serving as practical service providers and active participants in the implementation of the women’s individual jobpackages.
