competence why
Competence – why?
  • Process started in central government

  • Cascaded into government agencies and departments
  • Became an issue for EH following the HSE’s (2005) SITNA report
    • A baseline comparator to apply to all and against which training resources could be more effectively provided
  • Now a facet of ‘world class’ regulation
  • Anderson Review

The Professional Development Stairway to Competence

Excellence ?

Competence

‘Capability’ to ‘competence’ achieved via experience, peer review + reflective practice

Capability

Competencies

Skills

The journey to ‘capable’ as an EHP is via the qualification process

Knowledge

where are we now
Where are we now
  • Framework for H&S (RDNA) complete and launched in January 09
  • Framework for health protection complete and launched (by ‘Skills for Health’ as National Occupational Standards)
  • Framework for PH complete and launched (Cube)
  • Frameworks developed and about to be piloted in food safety and housing

why bother
Why bother?
  • Encourage career-long learning
  • Maintain and develop skills against a changing environment
  • Maintain the disciplines of learning and continuous professional development applied during training
  • Encourage and support more effective development action planning
  • Encourage and support reflective learning
why bother1
Why bother?
  • More structured, consistent and robust approach to identifying development needs at individual and line manager level
  • Support to Managers to help meet some of these locally
  • Support to individuals in developing themselves
  • Provides a shield against challenge to our decisions that is far more robust than a qualification certificate and experience
  • Once a standard is ‘out there’ and endorsed by a body of some standing it will become ‘compulsory’ by virtue of legal reference
