This skills framework gives a solid foundation on which to build:
- training needs analysis
- training programmes
- job descriptions
- career plans
This website is currently owned by CABI until we establish an independent body.
We are connected to the Open Skills Network: a coalition of organisations and other stakeholders dedicated to advancing skills-based education and hiring.
How to use the framework
The skills are organised by:
- Category: Which groups together similar skills
- Role: Which groups together skills that apply more to particular roles
- Level: Which groups together skills that may apply more to people at particular stages in their career
We suggest that the framework is used to provide a common vocabulary when having conversations about standards, regulations, certification and training.
Foundation: Someone who is an early stage in their career and works under supervision.
Practitioner: Someone who can work without supervision
Advanced: Someone who leads and provides direction
