    The next graph shows each skill and how they were scored in relation to average proficiency. The skills have been ordered in terms of descending score.

    The skill of “Using social media in the support of consultation & engagement activity” was rated as having the most proficiency across the cohort and the skill of “Ability to facilitate small or large groups to consider issues as part of a consultation” was rated as having the least proficiency across the cohort.

    The next graph shows the difference between average relevance and average proficiency. The skills are then arranged in descending order of score. Consequently, those skills which appear near the top of the graph (where relevance is greater than proficiency) are most significant in terms of an overarching training need whereas the skills near the bottom (where proficiency is greater than relevance) are least significant in terms of an overarching training need.

    2.3 Distribution by skills theme

    This section contains a number of bubble graphs which show the frequency and distribution results plotted across all participants (anonymised). These can be used as a visual aid to understand if there are underutilised skills as well as monitor trends over time. The size of each circle on the graph is proportional to the frequency at which the particular relevance and proficiency co-ordinate was given across the participants.
