About the Research
We looked at how the wider aspects of professionalism seem to be lost when policies aimed at individual competencies for entry level professionals in vocational training are applied to practicing professionals.
Ethical competence is a key distinguisher between simply having skills and having a true sense of professionalism. It is the stage beyond technical competence where ethical competence must be considered when extending policies to support skill and competencies to training and education for professional occupations.
