The University of Hull developed a competence-based education framework to underpin the transformation of its taught portfolio. As a result, graduates of their programmes can source, select and apply disciplinary approaches, knowledge and skills to any given task or practice and work with autonomy and responsibility.

Using the University of Hull Competence-based Education Framework as a starting point, the project team will evaluate the framework's suitability for cross-institutional use before generating an online competency-based education framework toolkit and associated resources for the sector to adopt.


  • An online competence-based education framework toolkit for the higher education community to adopt mapped to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF).
  • A self-directed online learning package providing interactive guidance on making the most of the resources.
  • An online project symposium to share case studies and exemplars.
