The CSC Approach 

Career-Span Competence is a dynamic expectation – a moving target if we look across a group of professionals.


From the perspective of a regulatory body, whereas entry-level competence can and should be micro-managed, the only way to effectively manage Career-Span Competence is to take a high-level view and leave micro-management to the individual registrant.

Enter: the Career-Span Competencies!

The Career-Span Competencies:

  • Are a cluster of 15 behavioural principles that should guide the performance of all professionals

  • Apply across professions, across roles and across work settings

  • Are broadly stated and include interpretation statements to explain their application; interpretation statements can – and should – be tailored by the professional to suit their individual practice

The Career-Span Competencies provide:

  • A powerful way of looking at how competence develops over a professional’s career span

  • A structure for developing organizational programming for professionals (such as regulatory quality assurance / quality improvement programs)

  • An approach that meets organizational needs to manage Career-Span Competence, AND resonates meaningfully with individual professionals by giving them control of their own professional development to be the best they can be
