Psychometric Testing - Thomas PPA

Psychometric tests are frequently used by employers when recruiting or considering promotions.

Thomas Personality Profile Analysis (PPA) provides an accurate insight into your working strengths and behaviours. PPA can help you to make effective career choices as it provides you with a description of your qualities and limitations, which are valuable when making key decisions.

The charge for this service is £60 for the psychometric report and feedback meeting.

“When my mum arranged an interview with the Careers Adviser, I wasn’t sure how that would help much. I didn’t know what I wanted to do anyway. I wasn’t motivated to go. Once I was there, the Careers Adviser I saw was very friendly and assured me that there's always options and my future starts now. I feel more motivated and I have an idea of what I want to work towards. Thank you so much.”

“This is such a great service, I wish this was available to me when I was in school! I would have known exactly want steps to take towards achieving my goals quickly. I arranged an interview for my son, he came back so motivated and focused. Thank you.”

“It has made me realise that it is actually down to me to make decisions about my future. It has been helpful to know where to actually get the information I need.”


" My name is Callum and I am currently studying for my A-levels in my home county of Leicestershire. I’ve always had a keen interest in sport as well as a passion for aviation. Thanks to my parents, who kindly funded my first ten flying lessons, really gave me the boost that I needed to take my first steps into a career in aviation. My thanks go out to LEBC and the STEM network who put me in touch with Sam Read, a current Commercial Airline Pilot, who has been giving me guidance along my journey to becoming a Pilot. Like many STEM Ambassadors he kindly gives up his time to come and talk with me, as well as regularly emailing. Of course I would never have met Sam if it wasn’t for the LEBC who teamed up with my school to provide regular careers fairs and open talks. Alongside studying full time and part time work commitments, I have recently completed my first solo flight, and I am now flying solo on various exercises and nearing the end of the course towards completing my license. Last week I was able to meet Sam for lunch after flying circuits at East Midlands Airport, just as Sam had landed from Cyprus.

Finally, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the STEM network and LEBC, and especially Samantha White, the careers adviser at my secondary school, for all of her help organising careers events as well as giving me a way of staying in touch with Sam after leaving school. "


Here’s what Helen had to say about our service:


"The interview went well, I got the job! Thank you so much for all your help. I don't know what I would do without you. I can't thank you enough."


Wishing you all the best Helen as you continue your journey to become a Nurse!
