The Policy Skills Framework describes the mix of knowledge, skills and behaviours a modern policy practitioner requires – to be able to deliver quality policy advice. 

Each element of the Framework is described at varying levels of experience and competence (from developing, through practising to expert/leading). This acknowledges the variety in the mix of skills (in breadth and depth) that policy practitioners can have over the course of their careers.
