Personal and Professional Development

 

The Behavioural Attributes Framework has been developed specifically for the University and contains eight behavioural attributes (below). The framework is designed to be compatible with the University's Leadership Attributes Framework (LAF) which has been developed by the Judge Business School and includes the attributes required by senior leaders across the University.

Within the University of Cambridge Behavioural Attributes Framework, there are four levels for each attribute - levels A, B, C and D; level A is the highest level within each. The exception to this is the Valuing Diversity attribute which has only level A - this level applies to all job grades.

Within Career Pathways, behavioural attributes are added to 'technical' skills to provide a profile of the skills and attributes required for a range of grades within each job family. The Career Pathways process requires individuals and managers/reviewers to assess the individual against both skills and attributes to identify gaps and the resulting development needs. The assessment can be carried out using the Career Pathways profile forms, which can be found under the Job Family tabs eg For Administrators.
