Workforce Capability Framework Update

It’s fantastic to see the Workforce Capability Framework being utilised and shared across our sector. The Framework authentically and genuinely describes the capabilities required by our specialist workforces in Queensland to deliver safe, effective, and respectful responses for those impacted by violence. It has been created with sector stakeholders and seeks to reflect the language and true nature of the work across our diverse sector and service types.

The WorkUP team has commenced working closely with some organisations that are choosing to embed this framework across their human resource and organisation development processes more deeply. We look forward to sharing the insights and lessons learnt, and continuing to evolve the framework as implementation develops and matures.

If your organisation is interested in doing a deep dive to embed this framework, please be in touch.

We have been busy working alongside sector leaders to develop a suite of practical resources and tools that are informed by and hang off the foundational framework. This includes:

  • A supporting resource – tips for implementing the Framework, including scenario-based examples.
  • Reflective Question resource that aligns with the capability domains in the framework
  • Job interview question bank for recruitment purposes
  • Series of new thought-provoking videos with practical suggestions, featuring leaders in our sector around themes of Supporting, Connecting, Sustaining and Growing our Workforce.

Stay tuned for iterative releases of these valuable resources. We are mailing out a copy of the framework and other resources to services in the coming month and new resources will be available online.

Look forward to seeing you at our upcoming activities to hear and learn more:
