COMPETENCY LEVEL DEFINITIONS
We use competency levels to differentiate how much experience candidates have. These levels are derived from the tried and tested Dreyfus matrix of skills acquisition and are summarised in the definitions below.
You can read more about the Dreyfus model of skills acquisition here on Wikipedia

Has a good working and background understanding, sees actions at least partly in context, able to complete work independently to a standard that is acceptable though it may lack refinement.
Has a working understanding, tends to see actions as a series of steps, can complete simpler tasks without supervision.
Has an incomplete understanding, approaches tasks mechanistically and needs supervision to complete them.
