Quality Education for a Healthier Scotland Career Framework for Health Skills for Health (2006) Scottish Government (2006/9) Consists of nine levels at which a function can be performed, from level 1 initial entry jobs to more senior staff at level 9. It aids workforce flexibility, providing a common language and currency to support career planning. It does this by mapping the NHS workforce into a nine level core skills and competence framework (except doctors and dentists). The nine levels represent a clustering of ‘roles’ which are grouped according to complexity, responsibility and the level of experience and knowledge required to carry them out. It has no direct link to pay – concerned only with defining the level of knowledge, competence, responsibility and associated experience, required for the delivery of roles within the NHS in Scotland.

Quality Education for a Healthier Scotland The Post Registration Career and Development Framework for Nurses, Midwives and Allied health professionals The Post Registration Career Framework is a web based resource which provides an infrastructure to support the continuing and changing development needs of the nursing, midwifery and allied health professions workforce. It aims to help these practitioners to assess their learning needs and plan their continuing development. It builds on a range of work already done for specific groups eg Neonatal Nurses; Community Nurses but provides a common framework that only needs to be customised to specific groups. The framework identifies key aspects of practice transferable across discipline specific and speciality groups.
