The European e-Competence Framework
The e-Competence Framework, is a tool to describe the skills of professionals in ICT-related roles.The e-CF is a reference for job and role descriptions, skill development, training and education.The framework has been developed by a large number of European ICT and HR experts in the context of the CEN Workshop on ICT Skills.The European e-Competence Framework is structured from four dimensions. These dimensions reflect different levels of business and human resource planning requirements in addition to job/ work proficiency guidelines.
The four dimensions of the e-CF are specified as follows:
- Dimension 1: 5 e-Competence areas, derived from the ICT business processes:
PLAN – BUILD – RUN – ENABLE – MANAGE
- Dimension 2: A set of reference e-Competences for each area, with a generic description for each competence. 36 competences identified in total provide the European generic reference definitions of the e-CF 2.0.
- Dimension 3: Proficiency levels of each e-Competence provide European reference level specifications on e-Competence levels e-1 to e-5, which are related to the EQF levels 3 to 8.
- Dimension 4: Samples of knowledge and skills relate to e-Competences in dimension 2. They are provided to add value and context and are not intended to be exhaustive.
