Choosing a licence
|Who are you and what do you want to do?||The licence you need||Annual fee|
|Use of SFIA by an individual professional to help plan their own professional development.||Personal User||Free|
|Internal use of SFIA as a management resource by a single company or Government department to help manage the skills of its staff. This includes the use of SFIA for the recruitment or sourcing of skills for internal use. This does not permit commercial exploitation of SFIA in relation to the sale or provision of services, resources and recruitment or products. Large companies making extensive use of SFIA internally should have the Extended Corporate User Licence below.||Corporate User||Free|
For organisations or consultants who might wish to exploit SFIA commercially, but first want to evaluate SFIA. During evaluation no other use of SFIA is permitted.
|For Public Sector organisations. Single public sector organisations can use SFIA under the same terms as the Corporate User Licence. Where the scope of the licence is multiple public sector bodies, distribution or sharing of SFIA related assets is required then this can be negotiated with the SFIA Foundation for very favourable benefits and modest cost.||Public Sector||From
|For Country-wide Licence: Where a Government wants to negotiate a very favourable position to promote a more integrated aproach to skills and competency development throughout their country - this removes the need for companies to be separately licensed.||Country-wide||Negotiation|
|Use of SFIA in an internal framework or scheme that you distribute throughout a large organisation or to other companies in your Corporation.||Extended Corporate User||£1,750|
|For companies that offer products and/or services that relate to human capital management, and want to make use of SFIA in the construction, promotion or delivery of those products or services. This licence is for an organisation (single legal entity) operating in one country, not involving the distribution of SFIA. This licence permits the use of SFIA in a rate card.||Accredited Partner||£1,750|
|For companies who also wish their wholly-owned subsidiary companies to be covered by an Accredited Partner licence. This licence provides for the same use as the Accredited Partner licence but for a group of companies (multiple legal entities) or a single legal entity operating in more than one country.||Global Accredited Partner||£3,500|
|For independent consultants with expertise in human capital management, who wish to include advice on using SFIA in services to clients. You have attended or will attend approved SFIA training. Promotion and use of the SFIA Accredited Consultant logo should clearly be in relation to the named individual. (A company offering similar services should become a SFIA Accredited Partner.)||Accredited Consultant||£250|
|For organisations that provide qualifications, certifications or other services (for example: training courses or rate cards for hired staff) and that wish to help the marketing of those services by showing how they relate to SFIA skills. This licence is also required for those organisations (recruitment companies) that use SFIA while recruiting staff on behalf of their clients. This licence is for an organisation (single legal entity) operating in one country and permits the use of SFIA in a rate card.||Mapping||£1,750|
|For organisations that also wish their wholly-owned subsidiaries to publish the mapping of qualifications or other products to SFIA. This licence provides for the same use as the Mapping licence but for a group of companies (multiple legal entities) or a single legal entity operating in more than one country.||Global Mapping||£3,500|

|Micro companies (1-10 employees and ≤ €2m turnover or balance sheet)||Rate Card (Micro)||£250 per year|
|For evaluation purposes only – offered to Micro Organisations for the first year only, in order to determine the value of SFIA for this purpose. This licence cannot be renewed, so continued use of SFIA would require one of the other licences to be agreed.||Rate Card (Evaluation)||£100|
