Competency Framework - Core Document

The core document consists of the four themes and specific research competencies to be completed and how to complete and achieve your essential levels of performance.

This document provides an assessment framework to enable the mentee and their mentor to review and record their current level of performance within each competence and set targets for progression.

There are two ways to use the framework:

Offline Version

This is a pdf document which you can download and print. You can then work with your mentor face to face to fill out action plans and sign off your evidence.

This version is best if you have limited online access and you can meet with your mentor regularly.

Online Version

This version is a Google document that you copy to your google account and share it with your mentor. You can then both work on the framework from different locations and it is saved in your google drive.

This means that you don't have to keep track of a physical document and there is always an up-to-date copy somewhere safe. It can be really beneficial if you don't always work in the same location as your mentor but you will need to have a Google account as, before you start

YOU MUST SAVE A COPY OF THE DOCUMENT TO YOUR GOOGLE DRIVE.
