E-Skills Plus has been designed to assess and identify the capabilities and needs of the infant, child, and adolescent mental health and AOD workforce at all three levels of performance indicators (Primary, Core and Specific) within both primary level services and secondary services. Practitioners assess themselves against listed performance indicators and identify whether they believe they are ‘competent’ or ‘need development’ in that area. Where possible we would recommend completing the tool with, or in consultation with your clinical manager.
Whilst embedded throughout the framework, it is anticipated that people completing Real Skills Plus ICAMH/AOD have reviewed their practice in alignment with:
- Let’s get real
- Te Whare o Tiki
- Real Skills Plus Seitapu
- Takarangi Competency Framework (Matua Raki, 2009)
We would recommend you are familiar with Real Skills Plus ICAMH/AOD (The Werry Centre, 2014 - PDF) before commencing the tool.
