Competency Framework for Academic Advising.

In December 2021, the OAAP finalized a new Competency Framework for Academic Advising. The Framework was collaboratively designed by Michelle Sengara, PhD, with input from over 30 Ontario post secondary institutions over an 18-month period, The Framework consists of 5 core competencies. Each competency is comprised of three specific skills. This model seeks to prepare advisors with the skills they need to be RESILIENT & RESPONSIVE within a changing reality, and support students in the cultivation of those same capacities. The Framework is the first Ontario model to define skills for advising professionals.
