Our recent findings on sector competency indicated that there was insufficient provision and qualification opportunities for supervisory staff
What changes have we made?
NHA have taken to lead and began the work on developing 2 new routes to qualification at both Level 4 & 5. These new qualifications will be based upon a sector Competency Framework which is in development and will be certificated.
"The existing supervisory qualifications are too knowledge-based and do not emphasise or develop performance in the workplace and as such they had only minimal sector take-up"
The new qualifications will place a greater emphasis on competency and performance in the workplace and will be designed to develop all the skills required to become a great supervisor. Futher details will be released as the development process progresses.
