Occupation specific capability sets are designed to be used with the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework to provide a fuller description of the capabilities required to perform in a professional role.
These sets generally apply to roles above entry level but below agency head. This is because specialised knowledge, skills and abilities are rarely required for either entry level roles or agency head roles.
Occupation specific capability sets are available for these professions
Agencies may use their own occupation specific capability sets or external frameworks (such as cross-jurisdictional standards or those offered by professional associations). They should, however, be used in conjunction with the Capability Framework. Agencies should use the core capabilities from the Capability Framework where there are overlaps with other frameworks.
Generally, a role should use capabilities from only one occupation specific capability set. The capabilities should relate to the main profession or job family.
