Competency Model Clearinghouse
The goal of this clearinghouse is to inform the public workforce investment system about the value, development, and uses of competency models. A competency model is a collection of competencies that together define successful performance in a particular work setting, from Personal Effectiveness Competencies, such as "Initiative," to Occupation-Specific Requirements, such as "Process patient admission or discharge documents." Competency models are a tool for Career Pathways stakeholders to communicate clearly about the competencies required for specific jobs, job groups, organizations, occupations, or industries, and a framework for developing educational offerings.
The Competency Model Clearinghouse provides validated industry competency models as well as tools to build a custom model and career ladder/lattice for any industry.
- The Clearinghouse provides industry-specific models for 20 industries, including commercial construction, energy, electronic health records, hospitality/hotel and lodging, information technology, and long-term care, supports, and services.
- Visitors can also use the Clearinghouse's resource database and online tools to build customized competency models and career ladders/lattices that reflect regional workforce needs.
- There is also a database of user-submitted case summaries and stories that demonstrate the many ways competency models are being used by specific States, industry groups, and Career Pathways initiative stakeholders.
- The Clearinghouse offers tutorials and user guides on "Developing Competency Models and Career Ladders and Lattices" and "Applying Competency Models and Career Ladders and Lattices."
