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

People in UK Public Health led on extensive consultation and development work which saw high levels of engagement from the workforce. Read the review of the PHSKF.

With endorsement from across the public health system, the revised framework aims to be reflective of the prevailing public health landscape, ensuring the public health workforce continues to develop the skills and competences needed both now and in future.
