Competency Assessment Toolkit for Technical Staff

Our Competency Assessment Toolkit for Technical Staff (CATTS) resource is designed to change the way that technicians explore performance.

It provides a benchmarking tool for all professionals, regardless of specialism or discipline, of their current competencies, development areas and future direction.

CATTS is evidence-based and allows for skills mapping and skills gap identification, technician recognition, continuous improvement and the performance and development appraisal process.

There are five key competency areas, including:

  • professional practice
  • the student experience
  • leadership and management
  • planning and organising resources
  • governance and compliance

What are the benefits of using the toolkit?

  • clear, progression routes
  • allows reflection, demonstration of impact and talent
  • aligns training needs and aspirations
  • showcases competency level and portfolio for career prospects

Using the toolkit

To help you get the most out the toolkit, we have created a package of support. This includes:

  • details of the five CATTS modules
  • framework tables for assessment of competency against each module
  • recording sheets which will be a working document and updated regularly
  • guides for reviewer and reviewee

We also offer a workshop to support your implementation of the toolkit.
