WHAT IS GETSET ?
GetSet is a simple but effective way of helping youth / students understand themselves better and identify their best contribution to a Team. The GetSet Report is also strongly equipped to help them make the change from education to the world of work.
Many career tests attempt to define what students should be choosing without giving them any experience of the world of work.
GetSet does not assume that any two jobs with the same title involve the same work. Instead, it helps students to recognise the behavioural strengths they can bring to work, so that they can decide what job best fits their behavioural "fingerprint".
WHO IS IT FOR ?
The GetSet Report is targeted towards Youth / Students to help them better understand themselves and their strengths to get them ready for the workforce.
WHAT DOES IT OFFER ?
The Belbin GetSet Report provides:
Understanding of their strengths and aptitudes
Useful descriptors for University and work application forms
Advice for interviews
An introduction to the needs of work and how to meet them
WHY DO YOU NEED IT ?
Our schools - be it Secondary Schools, Junior Colleges and Tertiary Level Institutions - provide structure that suddenly falls away when you enter the unfamiliar world of work.
You'll notice a few things as you onboard the workforce:
1) You might feel like you're on your own and you don't know what you want to do next.
2) Jobs aren't always what they seem.
3) Qualifications aren't everything.
The GetSet Report will help you to discover your strengths, understand how they can be applied to jobs, and how you can build better effective communication with your peers.
All in all, the report helps you to be more confident about who you are and what you have to offer, so that when the right opportunity for you comes along, you can seize it!
"Being confident about your own image and identity gives you a better chance of finding out what you have to offer, and what kind of work will suit you." - Belbin
HOW DOES IT WORK ?
Each student completes an online questionnaire (the Self-Perception Inventory) detailing their behaviour in different scenarios. The responses are used to generate a GetSet report.
If they wish, they can ask up to 6 others (fellow students, teachers, supervisors, or family members) to complete an Observer Assessment - a shorter questionnaire in which the observer identifiers words which describe the individual in question. This adds six pages to the student's report.
