Core Skills for Work Developmental Framework

This page provides information and a link to the Core Skills for Work Developmental Framework (CSfW) and associated resources. The CSfW is relevant to careers advisers, trainers and educators and people who are involved in the development of training material, curriculum, standards and learning and assessment resources.

The Core Skills for Work Developmental Framework (CSfW) describes the core non-technical skills that have been identified by Australian employers as important for successful participation in work.

The CSfW can be used in a number of ways. For example:

  • Educators, trainers and those who work with job seekers can use the framework to develop a common language and understanding about the skills and knowledge employers are looking for, and assist people looking for work to clearly describe their strengths, as well as areas for improvement.
  • Educators, trainers and those who work with job seekers can use the framework to develop resources and programmes that support people to develop the skills and knowledge that employers want.
