SFIA fundamentals quiz - making SFIA easier to consume

  • We have launched a pilot of a quiz on the fundamentals of SFIA.
  • For both new and seasoned SFIA users, the short quiz helps learn and deepen understanding of SFIA fundamentals.
  • The quiz helps anyone beginning their SFIA journey, whether it's for implementing SFIA at their workplace, for personal development, or just for gaining more insight into the framework.
  • The quiz is short and interactive. It's designed as a learning aid rather than a test. The platform provides feedback and guidance on both correct and incorrect responses.
  • Developed collaboratively by the SFIA Foundation and the Open University, this quiz is published by the SFIA Foundation. 
  • Many thanks to everyone who helped create and test the material.
  • This is a pilot - we would like to develop more quizzes and other learning aids.
  • Get in touch of you have ideas and/or can help the community develop these.

New interactive PDF  - SFIA skills profiles at your fingertips

  • The  SFIA skills profiles page has been very popular since it was first published in 2021.
  • The page is now viewed, on average, more than 3,000 times each month.
  • However - we know that the page is quite long which makes it difficult to browse (there are around 40 different skills profiles to illustrate common industry roles).
  • We also know that pdf versions of SFIA content are very popular and many SFIA users find them easy to use than web pages.
  • We have now published a  pdf version of the illustrative skills profiles with live hyperlinks to SFIA content.

Company logos

  • The SFIA Foundation is a global not-for-profit. We make the content of the framework available for free (or low cost for large organisations or commercial use).
  • The guidance and resources on the SFIA website are also freely available.
  • So while not contributing financially, one way that organisations can show their support for SFIA is by sharing their logo on the SFIA home page.
  • We have created the logo carousel and with thanks to the organisations who have shared their logos so far we have made a start populating it.
  • However - this is only a handful from the wide and diverse set of SFIA users and partners around the world.
  • We would like to have more. If you are an organisation that uses SFIA and/or a SFIA partner and are willing to share your logo - please get in touch. 

Thank you for shaping the future of SFIA through your ongoing participation and feedback.
