The Competency Model Clearinghouse initiative was developed in partnership between the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration and industry partners. The goal of the initiative is to promote an understanding of the skill sets and competencies that are essential to educate and train a globally competitive workforce. Currently, 26 diverse industry models exist including fundamentals of health care, cybersecurity, financial services and renewable energy.
Supplemental resources for educators, businesses, and workforce professionals include:
- searchable database of models by keyword
- two interactive online tools, the Build a Competency Model Tool and the Build a Career Ladder and Lattice Tool
- sample resiliency competency model (competencies include critical thinking, adaptability, self-awareness, reflective learning, and collaboration)
