Public health skills and career framework

A coherent, flexible public health skills and career framework has been developed for use across the UK.

For the first time the following have been brought together in a user friendly format:

  • public health competences
  • underpinning knowledge
  • training and qualification routes
  • database of job descriptions across nine career levels (in progress)

The aim is to create a framework that can be used as a route map for careers in public health regardless of starting and intended end points.

The framework is for:

  • Those already working in any field of public health now
  • Those wishing to enter the field of public health
  • Those involved in commissioning, organisation and delivery of public health training
  • Those involved in workforce planning
  • Employers of the public health workforce
