Skills for health

The health sector's training council - 'Skills for Health' - promotes a variety of resources for use by physios and other healthcare practitioners.

Achieving competence

Skills for Health has developed competence frameworks for many areas of healthcare practice. These tend to be around specific patient groups (eg children, older people) or care pathways (eg diabetes, long term conditions, chronic heart disease).

See the full range of competence frameworks projects that have been developed to date on their website:

Career framework for AHPs

Skills for Health has also produced a competence-based career framework for AHPs that aims to provide a resource for AHPs to support:

  • role and service development
  • career development
  • education planning, commissioning and delivery
