For health and care, key issues are recruitment, progression, retention, encouraging returners to work and identifying opportunities to share skilled staff within systems.
BCS can help you ensure that your digital team is fit now and for the future:

  • Through RoleModelplus, by helping you to understand and make the most of the skills within your digital team and identify the skills gaps and development needs of the team.
  • Through Organisational membership, by supporting the development of your whole team so that they have the skills needed for technology-enabled transformation.
  • Through an accredited Learning and development informatics portfolio, helping progression at all career stages


A RoleModelplus package has been developed specifically for the NHS and social care, incorporating both the industry standard digital competency framework, SFIA and the standard adopted for public sector roles, Government Digital and Data framework. Supplied with the modelling tool is a set of standard job role profiles for the technical and operational job role families developed with and for the NHS. This will enable you to:

  • Understand the skills across your team/department/organisation/system
  • Define your future needs, identify gaps and progression pathways
  • Address them through learning resources.
