The global skills and competency framework for the digital world

SFIA Approved Assessment Partners

SFIA Approved Assessment Partners are organisations that operate an assessment scheme approved by the SFIA Foundation.


Using SFIA to assess the skills and competencies of a person is a very powerful tool for their personal development. SFIA is driven by industry and in particular for professional employment. The continual evolution of the SFIA Framework to meet the changing needs of industry along with the breadth of coverage and the unique nature of the Levels of Responsibility mean that SFIA is ideally suited to:

  • Professional development of individuals - throughout their career.
  • Enabling a skills-first approach for organisations - closing its digital skills gap and upskilling or reskilling a workforce.

All organisations can gain significant benefits from assessing the skills of their workforce and can do so, for internal and non-commercial use, under a SFIA Corporate User Licence.

The SFIA Foundation operates a scheme by which a SFIA Partner organisation may be approved by the SFIA Foundation as a SFIA Approved Assessment Partner.

SFIA Approved Assessment Partners operate, and are wholly accountable for, their own assessment scheme which must satisfy the requirements set out by the SFIA Foundation. Provided those requirements are satisfied then the assessments can be considered to be SFIA Approved Assessments. It should be noted that approval by the SFIA Foundation may be withdrawn if a scheme fails to maintain the quality of the assessments.

While many organisation have been conducting 'SFIA Assessments' for many years - this approval scheme is relatively new - priority will be given to existing SFIA Accredited Partners in becoming SFIA Approved Assessment Partners.
