NMAHP Development Framework

The NES NMAHP development framework is an overarching resource comprising of two linked components. The Healthcare Support Workers Learning Framework and The NMAHP Post-registration Development Framework.

The Framework is based on practice from Level 5 (Practitioner) to Level 8 (Consultant Practitioner) of the Career Framework for Health (Skills for Health 2006, Scottish Government 2009). Moving through the levels is associated with increasing breadth and depth of knowledge, skills and behaviours across the four pillars of practice, widening engagement and increased responsibility and experience. The knowledge, skills and behaviours of each level of practice build on the level before.
