Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework

Go to this resource

The Public health skills and knowledge framework aims to reflect the current public health landscape, ensuring the public health workforce continues to develop the skills and competencies needed both now and in future.


The framework is accompanied by a user guide explaining how it can be used by individuals, employers and educational providers working in public health.


The Public health skills and knowledge framework was first published as the Public Health Skills and Careers Framework in 2008. It has been reviewed and redesigned in collaboration between lead agencies across the UK including Public Health England, Public Health Wales, NHS Scotland and the Public Health Agency of Northern Ireland.
