  • using the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) as the basis for competence identification; and
  • illuminating and structuring each ICT Professional Profile with a number of components including work outcomes or “Deliverables”.

The European ICT Professional Role Profiles provide a sound starting point and inspiration for the flexible creation of more context-specific profiles, based upon organisational roles or individual job descriptions from a broad variety of contexts.

A sound entry point for e-CF application to individuals and organisations

By applying e-CF competences to ICT profile construction, the European ICT Professional Role Profiles also provide a tool and entry point for e-CF application to individuals and organisations who wish to work with the e-CF standard.

The European ICT Professional Role Profiles make a key contribution to increased transparency and convergence of the European ICT Skills landscape and to maturing the ICT Profession overall. In addition to focusing upon individual ICT professional competence and performance the overall aim is to influence the ability of organisations to leverage ICT for better performance.

Developing and managing ICT Professional needs

Complementary to the e-CF, the European ICT Professional Role Profiles contribute to a shared European reference language for developing, planning and managing ICT Professional needs in a long-term perspective.

Benefitting from collaboration and exchange on multiple levels across Europe, the European ICT Professional Role Profiles and the underpinning concepts provide a means of summarising and organising the insights of experts and stakeholders into a reference tool.
