This Career and Competence Framework was commissioned by Health Education England, South East and NHS England and NHS Improvement. It is based on the needs of the NHS Long Term Plan 2019 which makes a commitment to invest in additional support for the most vulnerable children and young people, between the ages of 0-18, who have complex needs and can be described as presenting with high risk, high harm behaviours and high vulnerability. This framework was developed by our sister organisation, Skills for Health.
About this framework
How to use framework documents
Frameworks are particularly relevant to policy and operational leads who commission, design and develop staff training. They provide a robust framework for organisations commissioned to deliver training.
The use of frameworks will:
- Support a standardised training offer
- Guide the focus and aims of training delivery
- Ensure the operational relevance of training
- Allow for greater transferability and flexibility of staff
- Improve the quality and consistency of training provision
Frameworks also support the development and planning of the current and future workforce. The capabilities can be used to support the design of roles and teams as well as assessments of competence, training needs analysis and provision of minimum standards of performance within performance management systems.
