Global Knowledge UK maps training courses to SFIA initiative
Training company Global Knowledge has announced it has aligned its range of IT and business skills training courses to the The Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA).
"SFIA underpins an organisation's approach to professionalism in IT" explained Ron McLaren, operations director of SFIA, "This is why it's mandated throughout HM Government and used by so many organisations and professional bodies around the world."
Global Knowledge has developed a SFIA skills finder tool which is due to launch in September. This is designed to make it easier for IT professionals and HR managers to assess the IT skills they need against existing skill sets.
"We're really pleased that training providers, such as Global Knowledge, have mapped their portfolios to the framework," McLaren continued. "They understand that in these difficult times, their relevance and value to the client is enhanced by focusing on professional skills."
SFIA aims to help organisations employing IT professionals to:
Allan Pettman, UK managing director of Global Knowledge, said: "Organisations up and down the UK need to increase productivity to maximise opportunities and maintain costs.
"Investing in employee development and enhancing key IT and business skills, will reduce the costs associated with increased staffing or outsourced companies that manage core activities to the business.
"Many of our customers use SFIA as a basis for their competency frameworks. By mapping our courses directly to the respected SFIA initiative, it allows us to confidently expand our reach to companies to help improve efficiencies and competencies of in-house departments.
"It will not only help improve the standing and standard of the IT training industry as a whole but will also give organisations looking for IT training providers the confidence that they're choosing an accredited partner supplier. It can only be a good thing for the industry."
