Upskill Your Talent! 

Assessments are a method for evaluating employees’ ability to perform particular skills or tasks. They show a snapshot of current abilities, knowledge and skills. Gateway offers training assessments to employers to help companies know exactly where their employee skill levels lie so that specific training can be developed. These trainings are personalized and designed to close gaps and elevate performance, because one-size-fits-all training often widens the skill gap. Gauging skill and knowledge before training allows curriculum to be targeted, setting up all parties for success. 

Why our assessments are a valuable tool: 

  • Provide information so your company can make informed decisions
  • Identify skill levels and gaps
  • Allow you to schedule workers based on strengths
  • Gives you the base information to build a skills matrix
  • Can be used with current employees or job candidates
  • Instructors have years of industry experience and understand how to prepare assessments that address your needs
