Digital & IT technology has never been more important for the sucess of organisations. But, how is the IT industry responding to these challenges and creating frameworks that support people in their career development, and increase standards of skills development and professionalism?
This workshop looks at these questions. It takes a top down look at the IT careers landscape. It considers attendees views on what needs exist, and how these are currently being served.
We will then consider what 'Specialisms' in IT look like. And, how can we could define a model of specialisms that:
Contextualises the SFIA skills framwork
Helps people manage their careers,
Provides best-practice guidance to help organisations improve their skills & people management.
The workshop will be designed to give participants both opportunities for discussion and also engage in interactive exercises to elicit the views of the group. This will be a great opportunity to network, learn about some of the latest thinking on IT Career Pathway models, and provide valuable views that will help formulate how BCS can better support Career Pathways in IT.
Anyone who has (or is) managing a career in IT. The workshop will appeal partcularly to anyone that is interested in how Career Pathways and improved use of skills frameworks (such as SFIA) can better support and improve skills development and professionalism in the IT industry.
Attendees will be limited to a maximum of 30.
Tea, coffee and a buffet lunch will be provided.
