SFIA Learning & Development


A common language for skills in the digital world.

The Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) is a practical resource for people who manage or work in or around ICT. It gives individuals and organisations a common language to define skills and expertise in a consistent way using clear language; avoiding technical jargon and acronyms. It does this by mapping digital capability and skill level across 110 skills across six professional categories.

Enhanced Workpace Activities

All these necessary workplace activities can be enhanced by the targeted and structured application of the SFIA framework. Doing so will lead to improvement in employer and employee outcomes over time.

SFIA can be applied to support the full range of workforce management and development activities in your organisation, including:

  • Strategic Workforce Planning;
  • Role Design and Description;
  • Targeted Recruitment;
  • Performance Assessment, and Management;
  • Learning and Development.
