What is RoleModelplus?

RoleModelplus is BCS' own skills mapping platform, built to layout for IT leaders, learning and development leads and HR departments exactly what digital competencies exist within your organisation.

Build role profiles, career pathways and demonstrate development opportunities for your staff, all built around the SFIAplus framework, or input your own frameworks and taxonomies such as DDaT.

Built around the SFIAplus IT skills framework

SFIA is the skills framework for the information age, an internationally-recognised reference model for describing and managing your IT team’s skills and competencies. SFIAplus was developed by BCS to bring the SFIA framework to life, adding detailed training and development resources.

For each SFIA skill at each level, SFIAplus offers six additional task definitions and eight additional skills resources. What this means in practice is that both employers and practitioners are able to identify career pathways and plan development aligned with business transformation.

Will SFIAplus work with my team?

Applying SFIAplus in the real world is made easy because of its breadth and relevance to today’s IT industry. BCS consultants will show you how to optimise SFIAplus for your people, helping you gain absolute clarity around your skills landscape and the steps needed to achieve your objectives.

As the professional body for IT and a member of the SFIA Foundation, BCS holds a unique position in the tech community enabling us to offer critical insight, impartial guidance and exclusive opportunities for organisations to develop their teams and reach their long-term goals.
