Abstract: AMAS (Activity Matching Ability System) was developed 20 years ago by Loughborough University and was designed to help young disabled / disadvantaged people to enter the labour market. It is a tool that assesses the ergonomics aspects of jobs (the activities) and the abilities of an individual. The two sets of information are then matched and the results talked through with the individual to see if a good match has been obtained. Early versions of AMAS had a strong manufacturing focus that did not easily lend itself to a varied and developing labour market. The feedback from Employment Service staff, including Occupational Psychologists and Disability Employment Advisers, who used the early version of AMAS was that it was helpful but needed updating.
Description: This is an official report prepared for European Social Fund.
