What is capability development?
Capability development refers to the advancement and maintenance of skills, knowledge and attributes to enhance job performance and enable career advancement. It includes all formal and informal learning experiences that can improve an individual’s performance. The aim is to ensure skills and knowledge gained will enable people to perform their role effectively and demonstrate competence.
