Spotlight: A Skills Recognition Tool

The Spotlight tool is designed to shine a light on three sets of hard to name process skills that make a real difference in helping jobholders carry out work activities effectively.

The tool consists of a skills framework and a set of tools for applying this framework in writing position descriptions, selecting staff, managing performance and fostering inpidual and career development.
