Evaluate skills in reading, using documents and numeracy using the Locator.
This informal self-evaluation provides information on skill strengths and helps to identify areas for ongoing improvement. The self-evaluation contains an answer key and to gauge the level of performance in each skill area.

Use the Locator to:
learn more about existing skill levels in three skill areas
guide on-going learning or future skill development
inform potential skill development opportunities during an apprenticeship
gauge skill level improvement after practicing one or more skills
receive progress updates from apprentices
prepare apprentices for formal skill evaluations that use constructed response such as TOWES
