IT sector backs common language for skills and experience
e-skills UK has today published the IT Professional Competency Model - a new, sector-wide approach to expressing IT professional capabilities. This simple and flexible model represents a breakthrough in helping employers, educators and others to communicate using a common language and framework for skills, knowledge and experience.
The IT Professional Competency Model builds on the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA), allocating the competencies IT professionals have – in other words, what they can actually do – into a simple suite of subject-based 'disciplines' and levels. The model also includes transferable skills, such as business and personal skills, which apply to all disciplines. It is based on extensive consultation with employers of IT professionals in all areas of the economy.
