The global skills and competency framework for the digital world

Reviewing soft skills and behaviours for SFIA 8

We plan to publish SFIA 8 in Q3 2021. The consultation process for SFIA 8 includes a review of how SFIA supports soft skills/behaviours.

There are several activities planned to support this. If you have some ideas or you can help please contact the SFIA Updates Manager.

Disclaimer: The SFIA 8 project depends on contributions from volunteers.

While the SFIA Foundation does commit to delivering updates to the core SFIA framework (SFIA skills, skills and level descriptions, generics).

We cannot commit to all activities listed below without volunteer effort.
