Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSA) Frameworks
The Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSA) Frameworks are made up of multiple documents to guide both locally trained and newly graduated therapists in China through a process of learning and developing their professional skills to international standards.Together with Grand Valley State University (Michigan, US), we developed the KSA Framework based on current research, existing frameworks, and an extensive knowledge of China’s culture, training system, and educational needs. It will be used to support our mission of improving the standard of care in rehabilitation throughout China.
As well as using the frameworks internally with locally trained Chinese staff and newly graduated international staff, we are also making them available to individuals and organizations across China because we believe that the frameworks have the potential to facilitate improved care, which will positively influence the children and families of China.
Frameworks are provided in both English and Chinese
