The Framework provides a starting point for a systematic approach to training in your band. Its headings cover all aspects relevant to training, and the statements under each heading describe objectives that good practice will achieve.
The easiest way to use the Framework is as a checklist. For each aspect, does the way you do things take account of it? Is it practical (taking account of your situation)? Do you need to do anything about it? Could you explain why you do what you do, if anyone asked?
