Last week the Retirement Living Council unveiled Stage 1 of another industry framework to support the sector and importantly the careers of Village professionals.

The industry recognises that Village professionals play a vital role in the professional operation of communities and are often tasked with the key activities that deliver against resident expectations.

The new Retirement Living Capability Framework seeks to set the benchmark for the skills and capabilities needed by those professionals within the sector.

Stage 1 identifies the capabilities required by a Village professionals, further work is being completed on Stage 2 which will design how this framework will operate with the implementation Stage 3 focusing on the implementation expected to commence in mid to late 2020.

This new framework is a welcome addition for the sector as it provides clarity and consistency for the sector and residents on the skills and capabilities they should expect from retirement living professionals.

At the DCM Institute we were grateful to be provided with the opportunity to contribute to the Stage 1 process and are excited that this new framework provides a basis for Village professionals to commence building their ongoing career paths.
