#4 Extend Teaching & Learning Skills to Lower Levels

Suggest defining the teaching and learning skills in SFIA at lower levels, so these equate to practice (at least in Australia). http://blog.highereducationwhisperer.com/2017/07/extend-teaching-skills-for-it-profession.html

I see mentoring as an important part of my role as a manager. However, within the Skill Management section, the only item I give myself a positive score is LEDA. This is in part because I have only been able to influence the training of my own subordinates. Some recognition (or clarification) of 'not whole organisation' skills management would be a significant improvement.

Think there might be two points coming out:
Mentoring:
- It is not a recognised skill - probably shouldn't be unless we do more in soft skills area
- It appears in BusSkills at L5, perhaps there should be some recognition of this at a lower level (4) as often there is mentoring at this level and I get the feeling it is something that organisations like to encourage from that level

Clarification of 'whole organisation' ...

One helpful clarification might be to think about calling it skills mentoring or skills coaching. My concern is that Mentoring, to many, means a much deeper, spiritual strategic type of relationship.

But at lower levels I think we are talking a more operational level support to help others develop their skills, knowledge, behaviours, tactics to solve problems.
