Career Management Skills Framework

Career management skills (CMS) are competencies which help individuals to identify their existing skills, develop career learning goals and take action to enhance their careers.
To enable careers professionals and other educators to help people to develop their career management skills a number of countries have developed CMS frameworks. These frameworks provide a way to define the skills and attitudes which support individuals to effectively manage their careers and to progress through life.
The LEADER Framework for Careers organises these skills under five headings.
