The tool enables users to explore the entire European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) and to build custom ICT competence profiles, such as job descriptions, educational profiles, and curriculum or qualification profiles, which can then be downloaded as a text file or printed.
The tool is designed to be simple to use. You can’t break it, so try clicking on a few headings and buttons, and finding and selecting a few checkboxes to find out how it works.
When you’re done, click View / print / download to download or view the specification you’ve created.
The four e-CF dimensions that are hidden inside the initial view of the tool can be accessed by clicking on the relevant headings.
So, for example, clicking on the heading
A.1. IS and Business Strategy Alignment
reveals the reference competence description for that heading, and its Proficiency Levels, Knowledge Examples and Skills Examples headings. In turn, clicking these headings will reveal their relevant descriptions.
A second click on any heading will hide the dimensions that it contains.
The menus at the top right of the tool give quick access to the various sections and dimensions of the e-Competence Framework, and are there to help you quickly hide and show the information you are interested in. They do not affect your choice of checkboxes when building a job description.
Building a profile
The checkboxes that are revealed as you click through the tool enable you to build a profile from the framework.
You can select as many descriptions as you like. After you click View / print / download the selected items, and all the relevant headings above them, can be viewed, printed or downloaded.
