What is it and who is it for?
A competency is the task or activity which is performed to enable inferences about competence to be made. As an individual’s knowledge, skills and confidence in their role increase, they are able to demonstrate increasing independence and higher levels of performance.
The competency framework has been designed to define the knowledge, skills and attributes of research delivery staff who work closely with study participants.
How does it work?
The Core Document contains an introduction and outlines the competencies required; Evidence Forms, which are used to document witness statements, testimonies and personal reflections and blank competency forms, which are used by mentors for Customisation of the framework, if this is required to meet more specific needs.
