ICT professionals

ICT is a key driver of productivity and innovation and therefore it is essential that we continue to grow the capability of our ICT workforce.

The ICT and Digital Leadership Group have selected a world recognised framework, the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) as the occupation specific capability set for ICT professionals in the sector. The NSW Public Sector Capability Framework and the SFIA are used together to define capabilities required of our ICT workforce and provide a common set of expectations of ICT professionals across the sector.

Supporting the career development of ICT professionals

The NSW Public Sector Capability Framework and the SFIA, along with the ICT sector role descriptions, have been used to develop an ICT Career Pathway Framework. The Career Pathway Framework is intended to be a tool that assists with individual career planning, as well as strategic workforce planning, in ICT.
