The framework aims to provide sufficient detail: 

  • For valuing the existing skills and professionalism of people working in HE-settings who provide practical support to people with mental health difficulties.
  • To identify specialist capabilities linked to the Higher Education setting.
  • For managers of HE-specific mental health services in creating work environments that foster best practice, including a framework for appraisal and performance review.
  • For members in assessing needs in relation to continued professional development.
  • To guide training consortia when reviewing and developing training.
