Capability leadership framework

The Capability and Leadership Framework(CLF) was created to clarify the expected leadership capabilities and behaviours across Northern Territory Public Sector (NTPS) job classifications and levels. 

The CLF is expected to play a leading role in the development of leadership and core capabilities of NTPS employees and guide discussions about individual and team performance.  It will also help with decision making in professional learning and development.

Other capability frameworks designed for specific professions complement the CLF, such as the NTG ICT Capability Framework and NTPS Human Resources Capability Framework (HRCF)

Employees in these professions can use these frameworks with the CLF on their own or to guide employees interested in careers in these professions about the necessary capability requirements.

The CLF has 13 levels that can be used across all agencies, NTPS classifications levels and employment types. The below table indicates which CLF level matches the various classifications.

The framework includes a comparative section that evaluates the capabilities and components for groups of levels. This enables the reader to see their skills development throughout their career at a glance.

A CLF Assessment Tool has been developed to assist with performance conversations. It is a tool allowing employees and managers to assess performance against expectations at the employee’s CLF level and helps introduce performance conversations and professional learning planning. Instructions on how to use the tool are included in the document.
