Consultation open on family, whānau and sexual violence workforce capability framework

December 08, 2016 at 4:41 PM

*From the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse*

The Ministerial Group on Family Violence and Sexual Violence Work Programme is inviting consultation on a draft "Family Violence, Sexual Violence and Violence within Whānau Workforce Capability Framework."

The purpose of the framework is to outline the core capabilities that members of the workforce need to have to effectively deliver family and sexual violence services, and to better collaborate and coordinate with each other.

To give feedback

You can view the draft framework and give feedback online on Loomio.

Consultation is open until 13 January 2017.

You need to register to view the document and give feedback.

You can also contact Giselle Wansa-Harvey, Workforce Workstream Lead at the Ministry of Social Development, to request a copy of the framework, to give confidential feedback or to ask questions:

More information about the framework

The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) appointed an Expert Design Group comprising government and non-government experts in family and sexual violence to co-design the framework and explore implementation options for the sector.

The framework outlines its purpose, scope, workforce tiers, principles and domains. It is presented in a forever kia puāwai (blossoming) flower. 

The framework details six guiding principles and six domains of capability in the family and sexual violence workforces. Each domain includes knowledge, vision of excellence and actions as well as reflective practice questions.

The document says "This bicultural, principle based framework is Treaty informed and is inclusive of all cultures and ethnicities in Aotearoa/New Zealand. The applied principles of Ūkaipō, Rangatiratanga, Whanaungatanga, Aroha, Kaitiakitanga, Manaakitanga and Kotahitanga are universal and have multicultural equivalents."

The Workforce Capability Framework (led by MSD) is one of the workstreams of the Ministerial Group on Family Violence and Sexual Violence Work Programme. More information about the work programme and other activities is available on the Ministry of Justice website.
