SFIA - ISCO-08

Using SFIA with ISCO-08, The International Standard Classification of Occupations. A mapping undertaken by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has adopted the SFIA Framework as their Digital Skills Framework under a country-wide licence.

The General Authority for Statistics in KSA has produced the Saudi Classification of Professions aligned to ISCO-08 and the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) commissioned work to map SFIA to the ISCO-08.

The mapping was conducted by SFIA Accredited Consultants Matthew Burrows, John Boyle and Andy Thomson, as part of a contract awarded to SkillsTx by MCIT.  It is made available by kind permission of the Ministry.

123 example mappings are presented.  The most common skills and competencies, along with their level, which would typically be practiced during the performance of jobs and roles within these occupations are highlighted. They should not be thought of as a complete and exhaustive list of all the skills and competencies required, as the same job or role within different teams or organisations will undoubtedly vary and require a slightly different mix of skills based on the operating model, industry context, underlying technologies and methodologies, as well as the size and structure of the organisation.
