NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework

The NHS KSF is part of your terms and conditions as an NHS employee, it guides personal development by laying out the knowledge and skills which you have to develop in your post in a KSF post outline.

Every activity in the Flying Start NHS® learning programme is linked to the NHS KSF, therefore as you work through the programme you are creating evidence for your formal development reviews at six and twelve months.

Alongside your job description, you will be given a KSF post outline which describes the specific knowledge and skills you will be required to evidence in the first year in post in order to gain pay progression.

This process will be managed jointly by your manager and your KSF reviewer, and you should make sure you understand your role and how often you will meet your reviewer.
