This page, and the pages available using the menu above contain information and links for you to learn about the Capability Framework and develop any areas where you need to build on the skills/knowledge/behaviours you already have.
Employee’s only need to work through one page.  This page is for all roles categorised in the Capability Framework (and CR&D) as Level 4. 
As you’ll see below, all learning/development is split into each of the five Guiding Principle headings.
After working through this page and the associated training, your development doesn’t need to stop there…
…we’d encourage you to seek out your own additional reading/development depending on your own needs.
There are four levels of the framework, which reflect the increasing levels of responsibility different people hold in the organisation.  Once you know which level you are, select the correct page by clicking on the ‘Learning for Level … roles’ menu above.
  • Level 1 is for everyone – most employees who don’t lead people/projects etc. will be Level 1
  • Level 2 is for people with responsibility for leading people, projects or managing resources (like buildings, rotas, budgets etc)
  • Level 3 is for people who lead service delivery and / or manage managers
  • Level 4 is for leaders of the whole organisation (e.g. Chief Officers and Directors)
However, if you’re not sure which Capability Framework Level you are then Click Here to learn how to view this in your CR&D.
Guiding Principles:  The five Guiding Principles are ‘Purpose’, ‘Pride’, ‘Team’, ‘Trust’ and ‘Value’ – These guide the way we work, the way we behave with each other and make sure we all have the same understanding of what it means to work here.
Capability Framework:  The Capability Framework lists the skills, knowledge and behaviours that we need from every single employee (in addition to your job specific skills and knowledge).  The Capability Framework skills/knowledge/behaviours are split up into four levels (1 for many non-managerial employees up to 4 for Chief Officials).  All of the skills/knowledge/behaviours in each of the four levels are displayed on these pages by the relevant Guiding Principle heading.  So regardless of where you work in the Council, once you know which ‘Level’ your post is then you’ll need to understand the content on that page (this page contains all of the Capability Framework information for L4 posts).
Continuous Review & Development:  Part of the CR&D process is to measure how well you have learned each of the skills/knowledge/behaviours relevant to your roles’ level.  So if for example you are in a Level 1 role then you’ll need to review and understand all the information available on/via this page.
