An overview of the Core Capabilities Frameworks

Core Capabilities frameworks are offered as guidance and good practice for development of the current and future workforce. Unlike the Statutory/Mandatory CSTF, there is no formal process for declaring alignment to these frameworks.

Each framework sets out the core capabilities – the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed – for safe and effective practice. They can be used to commission or design services, education or training, for identifying key skills and knowledge needed, for developing new teams and roles, in recruitment and selection processes, to ensure consistency in training standards and for quality assurance purposes.
