Cultural competency framework opportunities

One of the key areas for action highlighted in the final BLACHIR report, under the theme ‘trust and transparency’ called for action to strengthen cultural competence in organisations and communities. We are excited to launch two innovative and complementary projects that will improve cultural competence in Birmingham.

Cultural humility and safety training framework

The cultural humility and safety training framework aims to enable organisations to provide training that will equip their staff with the confidence and skills to maintain respectful relationships based on trust. It instils in staff a commitment to self-reflection to better understand personal and systemic biases and to address power imbalances.

Cultural intelligence framework

The cultural intelligence framework aims to develop an individual's ability to understand, adapt to, and effectively interact with people from different cultural backgrounds. It includes a set of capabilities, knowledge and understanding of how people from different cultures live and behave. This will equip leaders and managers with the tools they need to make decisions and develop policies and practice that consider the differences between communities.

Pilot partner opportunity

We are looking for local organisations to join Birmingham Public Health and academic partners in piloting BCHSF and BCIF training and development frameworks during 2024 and 2025.

Academic evaluation tender opportunity

This opportunity will open on 8 March 2024.

The deadline for this tender will be 31 March 2024.
