Skills Audits A skills audit is an investigative process for identifying, measuring and recording the existing skills or competencies of an individual, group, team, department or organisation. A Skills Audit is a complementary process to a job role analysis. A Skills Audit identifies the currently existing skills whereas a JRA identifies the skills required. Where there are existing defined competency standards for the job, the skills audit results are a compilation of the relevant national units of competency. Skills audits • define the existing skills of the target individual or group • establish an understanding of the current skill and qualification base of the workforce • provide intelligence for workforce development • provide personnel with the opportunity to indicate training, development and retention priorities • provide an opportunity for staff feedback on the job role and description • allow both self and guided assessment formats • establish benchmark results for future audits. A Skills Audit performed in conjunction with a Job Role Analysis will provide the information on the precise skills gaps for an individual and job, department or organisation that allows a training needs analysis to document the focus for required training.
