Discover SFIA: Introduction to the SFIA framework + version 9 preview

Digital skills and roles are changing almost every day. The need to think about professional development in a more structured and consistent way is becoming critical for all of us.

Meet SFIA – the Skills Framework for the Information Age. SFIA is a fantastic tool to understand and build on your digital skills and capability. SFIA continues to grow in use across NZ and the region, and is proving to be an invaluable tool for both organisations and individuals to shape thinking around skills and capability.

This workshop will introduce you to what SFIA is and how to use it. We will highlight ways of using SFIA to understand what digital skills you have, what digital skills you need, and how to make the most of them. We’ll look at how to use SFIA throughout the talent cycle (for organisations) and in your own career (for individuals). There will be a big focus on its benefits for professional development and lifting organisational capability.

We will also be sharing an update on the upcoming version 9 of SFIA to be released towards the end of 2024. The NZ digital community has made a significant contribution to the development of version 9.

The Digital Skills Agency is the leading regional expert in SFIA. We are an Accredited Partner, Training Partner and Assessment Partner of the SFIA Foundation and a member of the Global SFIA Council.
