This course enables participants to develop their knowledge and proficiency in the following Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA®) professional skills:

  • METL: Methods and tools
  • CIPM: Change implementation planning and management
  • ITMG: IT Management

This list gives the core SFIA skills covered by the course.  Elements relevant to other SFIA skills may also be included to a lesser depth.  Proficiency in a SFIA skill is measured by performance assessment and is achieved through actual substantial use of that skill in a real-world situation over some time. In course assignments and exercises undertaken through a course can demonstrate elements of the relevant skills which can then be further developed back in the workplace.  Acquiring new skills and building on existing skills, ideally occurs within the context of an agreed development plan for each person that ensures that their personal circumstances, strengths and development needs are met.
