Competency Profile for Academic Staff

What are Competencies and why use them at IUBAT?

A competency is a synthesis of the knowledge, skills and abilities a person needs for successful job performance. IUBAT has identified a set of core competencies that forms the foundation for its performance management system, competencies that underpin the duties and tasks of all jobs at the organisation, regardless of level. These are designed to embody the University’s vision, values and strategies. All employees will be held accountable for fulfilling these competencies in the performance of their jobs.

A competency profile is a set of competencies, attitudes and behaviours that connect directly to a job, as well as the levels of proficiency required for each post. There are up to ten (but at least five) competencies for any given position. With transparent and fair competency profiles, IUBAT can recruit, train, develop and reward employees in transparent ways that are consistent with its vision and objectives. There are ten competencies in IUBAT’s academic competency profile, measured at five ascending developmental stages. Each stage is incremental and cumulative, implying that the postholder can perform all the duties pertaining to development stages below her own.
