The CEPIS e-Competence Benchmark, a free online interactive tool for ICT professionals to identify their competences.

CEPIS will launch the CEPIS e-Competence Benchmark, an online interactive tool for current and future ICT professionals to identify the competences they need for various ICT roles, enabling them to adapt to labour market demand. The CEPIS e-Competence Benchmark will enable individuals and recruiters to map their competences against a range of profiles and better equip themselves for future roles and employment. It will allow companies to benchmark entire departments, identify workforce gaps and plan accordingly.

It is powered by the European e-Competence Framework the common language for ICT competences created by the CEN workshop on ICT skills and therefore provides a standard upon which Europeans can better understand what is needed for their current and future IT roles based on the ICT Professional Profiles developed by CEN. Each person who takes the CEPIS e-Competence Benchmark will receive a competence gap analysis based on their declared abilities and matched to suitable roles. This will provide an individualised report to steer their professional development and facilitate their future training and education decisions.


CEPIS will work with national informatics societies around Europe and beyond to promote this CEPIS e-Competence Benchmark and its benefits.  It also seeks to work with any companies or organisations who would like to use the CEPIS e-Competence Benchmark or provide input into its future development.   It welcomes all expressions of interest in this regard.
