NSW Public Sector Capability Framework

Central to workforce performance are the capabilities – the knowledge, skills and abilities that public sector employees must demonstrate to perform their roles effectively.

The NSW Public Sector Capability Framework is a key deliverable against the Public Service Commission’s Strategic Priority to develop NSW public sector capability. The Framework provides a common foundation for creating roles, recruiting to roles, managing performance, capability development, career planning and, more broadly, workforce planning.
