ICTC to conduct Online Focus Groups for ICT Competency Profiles Tools

The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) is pleased to announce that it will be conducting online focus groups dedicated to gathering user requirements to guide ICTC in the development of Online Tools for the ICT Competency Profiles framework.


One year ago, ICTC released the new ICT Competency Profiles framework as a leading-edge resource for employers, educators and other ICT stakeholders to use as they develop their ICT human resource programs. The framework was made available in print, electronic document and online searchable database versions.  We are very excited at the number of organizations that have embraced this new resource.


The overall objective of the Competency Profiles Online project is to improve the online experience of users through the ability to customize content from the framework to meet their specific needs. One of the proposed areas of functionality for the web based tools is to provide employers and ICT professionals with the ability to create custom job profiles based on ICTC's framework.


ICTC would like to thank all of the early adopters of the framework. We hope that you will agree to share your experience about your use of the framework and provide input on how we can develop the online capabilities of this resource to better meet your needs.


ICTC will be holding online focus group sessions in January 2010 to gather user requirements of employers for the ICT Competency Profiles framework web based tools.  The online focus groups will be held between January 6 - 13, 2010. Specific dates and times for the online meetings will be determined shortly.


If you would like to participate in any of these focus groups, please contact:
