What is SFIA?

SFIA describes the skills required by IT professionals in various roles. This framework has become a globally accepted common language for the skills and competencies required in the digital world. It allows individuals and organisations to form a common language to define skill, abilities and expertise in a consistent way.

Benefits of a professional skill profile using the SFIA framework:

  • Creating a clearer understanding of professional skills and levels
  • A clear view of  skills to develop and training needs
  • Internal recognition of skills and expertise

Who can help with using the SFIA frame work? 

The SFIA framework can appear complex and daunting at first glance. We have a dedicated career development adviser, Rinku Raina who can offer one to one support and create your personal skill profile using the specialist SFIA framework.Rinku pic.jpg
