Version 6 of the Skills Framework for the Information Age

SFIA, the Skills Framework for the Information Age, describes skills required by professionals in roles involving information and communications technology.

Formally established in 2000, and regularly updated, SFIA has become the globally accepted common language for the skills and competencies required in the digital world.

The collaborative development style involves open consultation and input from people with real practical experience of skills management in corporate and educational environments. That is what sets SFIA apart from other, more theoretical, approaches and has resulted in the adoption of SFIA by organisations and individuals in nearly 200 countries.
