Skills and Competency Framework

What is it?

Manchester Metropolitan University

Competencies are the skills, knowledge, practical behaviours and attitudes which inform the way of operating in working life.  At Manchester Metropolitan University, we offer flexible programmes which support staff to develop a range of competencies and skills across the career spectrum.  Our education programmes, awards and CPD offered across the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social care provide students with skill based learning,  placement and work based learning opportunities to equip them for a professional career in the workplace.

University of Salford

The University of Salford has flexible programmes, innovative pedagogy and world class facilities to support staff develop their health and social care career.  Programmes articulate skills developed alongside knowledge at module level. Professional Skills and Competency are mapped against PSRB standards so professionals are able to see how their learning meets national benchmarks. Learning and teaching is often skills based and practical and placement experience and / or work based learning feature in every programme.

Why do it?

Manchester Metropolitan University

Skill and competency frameworks support both individuals and the employer as they enable clarity over both the role and the performance required by the individual. A skills and competency based approach will ensure a high quality of service is consistently maintained and will encourage excellence for all.
