The National Capability Framework for the care of children and young people with asthma

What is the training?

This framework has been developed to allow individuals and employers to be aware of the skills and knowledge that are required to ensure they can safely care for a child and young person with asthma. The framework is aimed at both health and non-healthcare professionals across all aspects of a child’s life, including childcare providers, education providers, uniformed services, sports coaches, social services and health care workers.

The framework divides different roles into 5 ‘tiers’. A tier describes the level of care a person may be expected to deliver to a child or young person with asthma. The more involved the care, the higher the level of tier. Please see below for the list of Tiers.
