ICT Career Pathway Framework

An introduction to the ICT Career Pathway Framework

The NSW Government ICT Strategy outlines a range of strategies to build ICT skills and capability to deliver better services, better insights from data and better value ICT investment.

The development of an ICT Career Pathway Framework is a key element of the strategy. It has been created by the Public Service Commission and the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation, who have collaborated with ICT subject matter experts from a range of NSW government agencies.

The purpose of the ICT Career Pathway Framework

It is essential that we continue to grow the capability of our workforce. Professionals today need a blend of business and technical skills to enable delivery of solutions that meet the needs of the community and clients.

Our framework is intended to be a tool used by employees when planning their career, as well as for managers in the context of strategic workforce planning. It is indicative, rather than definitive.

The framework illustrates the interrelationship between the 55 sector ICT role descriptions, as well as 7 emerging ICT roles, highlighting lateral, vertical and diagonal moves that can be made between these roles in response to trends influencing capability and role requirements in a NSW public sector context.
