The UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for teaching and supporting learning, launched in February 2006, is a fl exible framework which uses a descriptor- based approach to professional standards. There are three standard descriptors (SDs), each of which is applicable to a number of staff roles and to diff erent career stages of those engaged in teaching and supporting learning. The standard descriptors are underpinned by areas of professional activity, core knowledge and professional values. The framework provides a reference point for institutions and individuals, as well as supporting ongoing development within any one standard descriptor. The framework is currently under review. 9.
