The CYFAR Core Competency Self-Assessment Tool is a professional development planning tool for CYFAR front-line employees working with vulnerable audiences. It is a tool for guiding and informing professional development needs.
Tip: You are not required to have a CYFAR account, or login, to use this self-assessment, but the website will save your responses if you are logged in. This will make it much easier to review your feedback. We treat your privacy very seriously, your responses are not shared with anyone.
We recommend that you as a front-line employee complete it on an annual basis and discuss the results with your supervisor to guide your professional development.
Once you complete the CYFAR Core Competency Self-Assessment Tool online, an automated report will be generated. This report then can be used by you and your supervisor to determine how best to address the identified professional development needs through:
Rate how important each of these skills is to your work, using this scale:

2 = A little important
3 = Somewhat important

Rate your current skill level for each skill, using the following scale:
1 = No current skill in this area
2 = A little skill in this area
3 = Somewhat skilled
