The ESAT has been designed to complement the Community Development National Occupational Standards (CDNOS) by focusing on the six key areas and the CDNOS Values, with a specific emphasis on health inequalities. It is a core element of the Elevate Capacity Building Programme and not only will it provide us with vital insights into the work and practice of a range of interested individuals and organisations, it will allow us to aggregate information across Northern Ireland, identify trends and key capacity building issues for our sector. We will also use the ESAT to influence other parts of Elevate such as the Mentoring and Training Programmes.
We hope you find this tool useful.
