Public Health Knowledge and Skills Framework (PHSKF)

The revised 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 new framework contains a set of high level functions that the public health workforce carry out covering the full range of what people ‘do’ in public health

All the PHSKF documents are available online on the Gov.uk website in an accessible and user-friendly format for a broad-based workforce audience. The first document presents the 13 functional areas described in the revised Framework with a supporting glossary.

The second document is a user guide which provides some early examples of how the Framework can be used by individuals who are part of the core workforce; those who are part of the wider workforce such as Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) and other groups such as education and training providers and employers.
