Competency framework review
We’ve published a revised pilot version of the framework. This was published in December 2020 for consultation, following the launch of the new statistics strategy, Statistics for the public good, 2020-2025.
We want your feedback on this version. Your feedback will help us improve it ahead of launching the new framework in 2021.
This policy is reviewed annually.
