22 July 2014: UCT Competency Framework

UCT has agreed a UCT Competency Framework which sets out the types of behaviours one would expect to see in successful performance in different types and levels of jobs. The UCT Competency Framework provides a comprehensive list of competencies for all Academic and PASS jobs at UCT, and descriptions of how these competencies look at different levels of jobs. The Framework is used when we:
  • Design jobs and structure
  • Write job descriptions
  • Manage and develop performance of staff
  • Recruit and select staff
  • Train and develop staff
  • Identify and plan career paths
  • Plan for successors for key jobs
  • Develop our organisational culture
Note: These descriptors are not rigid and absolute performance measures, but rather generic guidelines for what effective performance looks like. They are a starting point for a conversation around expected levels of performance. The competency framework is neither all-inclusive nor prescriptive.
