The Capability Assessment Tool provides a cost effective resource to assess capabilities and skills, plan for, monitor and document the growth of your school or workplace team members over time.
This practical PDF resource is designed for use in conjunction with the book, Learning Talk: build capabilities, which provides instructions for use and ways to use the Assessment Tool.
Purchasing the Tool
For in-school use:
A one-time fee of $30.00 enables you to make multiple copies and use it over time within your own primary, secondary, special school or Early Childhood Centre.
A sample school scenario:
- A school purchases a copy of Learning Talk: build capabilities for each leadership team member. As they dialogue and reflect on its contents, they decide to use the Capabilities Assessment Tool at regular intervals over the school year to assess and monitor their own leadership growth and progress. They also identify a need to build staff capabilities to engage in rigorous, skilful professional conversations, and build use of the Tool into their Strategic Plan and Performance Review Process for all staff. With a total staff of 30, purchasing the Capabilities Assessment Tool PDF for a total fee of $30 provides a cost effective resource that enables leaders to make multiple copies and use it in ongoing ways within their school.
