Australian Public Service Digital Career Pathways

Australian Public Service Digital Career Pathways

Australian Public Service (APS) Digital Career Pathways have recently been published by the Australian Government’s Digital Transformation Agency (DTA).

 

This includes a set of role profiles, which have been defined using SFIA – the Skills Framework for the Information Age.

 

We expect there will be some updates in future iterations to address a few minor anomalies, but this is a really good start for what is labelled as an ‘alpha release’. Credit to Grant Nicholson and his team at the DTA – Grant sits on the SFIA Council with me and several other passionate advocates and users of SFIA, providing feedback and ideas which have been invaluable when producing the last couple of versions of the SFIA framework, and in preparing guidance around how to get the best value from using SFIA.

At SkillsTx we’ve taken the great work by the DTA and immediately made it available to our 1000’s of free users to explore and bring it life. This allows you to create your own individual skills profile, compare it to the APS Digital Career Pathways and role profiles, and then build a structured Development Action Plan to address any skill gaps for your chosen career path.
