Capability Standards

Standards to complement public employment and leadership frameworks

IPAA has produced three outcomes-based professional capability standards designed by experts from public sector agencies, professional bodies, and organisations in the private, tertiary and vocational educational sectors.

The standards are advisory and reflect the expectations of performance achieved by a skilled professional at an Australian Qualifications Framework level 9.

Organisation are welcome to use the standards in their human resources frameworks.
