Career Guidance Testing

Group career guidance testing is done with grade 12 learners in their school computer room, and it can also be remotely supervised via zoom.

The testing includes testing of aptitudes, personality, career interests and values; and a career guidance report, which is sent to the learner and their parents.

About the Foundation

The CB Foundation was created in 2018 to provide career guidance testing, and identification of high potential learners, for Grade 12 learners from disadvantaged schools. To date seventy learners have been tested, nine high potential learners have been identified, and these nine learners have been referred for study bursary assistance.  

The best practice principles for psychometric testing are used, as laid down by the Board for Psychology, Health Professions Council of South Africa. Testees are required to sign a consent form for psychometric testing; test results are strictly confidential; and the tests used are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.

Disclaimer: The Foundation is not legally responsible for any decisions taken by an individual testee or their parents, on the basis of the test results, regarding career or study choice.
