INFLUENCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PAN-EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK FOR ICT PROFESSIONALISM AND E-SKILLS
The Council of European Professional Informatics Societies (CEPIS) and the Innovation Value Institute (IVI) at NUI Maynooth are asking IT practitioners throughout Europe to contribute to a ground-breaking research project on attitudes to structures of professionalism within the field of IT. We have been tasked by the Directorate-General Enterprise and Industry of the European Commission, to contribute to the development of a European framework for ICT professionalism, which is ultimately aimed at fostering the competences and the mobility of IT practitioners across Europe. This work was presented at the recent Council Meeting.
As a recognised ICT Professional I would like to invite you to take part. This survey will look to develop a clearer understanding around the following issues:
- The need for, and structure of, an ICT Professionalism framework.
- The impact of certification programmes on job mobility and career development.
- How competence frameworks are and can be used to develop ICT professionalism.
- What training and education is best suited to developing the CIO / IT Manager of the future.
- The ethical considerations for an ICT profession.
- The Bodies of Knowledge (BoK) currently being used by ICT practitioners.
You can take the survey in either of two ways.
2) Alternatively, below you will find a document version of the questionnaire for your convenience.
If you have any questions about the survey, or you simply want to return the completed document version of the questionnaire please use this email address:[email protected]
By participating in this important project, you are helping to contribute to an improved recognition and standing of the vitally important role that ICT, and ICT Professionals and Practitioners play in European industry, economy and society.
We would be grateful if you could complete and return the survey before 1st pf June 2011. The results of the survey will be available for review on the www.ICTProf.eu website from the middle of July 2011.
