Capability Framework

The Northern Territory Public Sector (NTPS) Capability Framework describes the capabilities and associated behaviours expected of all NTPS employees.

It provides our diverse public sector a shared language to describe the capabilities needed for effective performance across all classifications, occupations and organisations.

The Capability Framework supports the NTPS to develop and maintain a workforce that is:

  • highly capable
  • flexible
  • sustainable and
  • future focused.

The Capability Framework has 13 levels that align to classifications and employment streams for all agencies.
