SFIA for People Managers

Our half-day SFIA for People Managers training is designed for line managers, team leaders, HR and L&D practitioners, and others who support staff in their professional development. In this course we will explore how to leverage SFIA assessment data and SFIA role profiles to help staff create development plans to address skills gaps against the current expectations or future goals.

Participants will be able to explore the most important fundaments of the SFIA framework, before delving into our handy tips to speed up the creation of development plans. The focus of the course is on the practical applications and case study based exercises (which can optionally be tailored to your organisation) to help bring the topic to life.

Prior exposure to SFIA, preferably through participation in a SFIA assessment process, and/or the develop of SFIA role profiles is recommended, but not required.

Private half-day face-to-face workshop-based training, run at your venue (minimum 4 people).

SFIA Role Profiling

Our SFIA Role Profiling training takes participants through how to create SFIA role profiles from process documentation, evaluate existing documentation, use SFIA assessment data, and rapidly prototype SFIA role profiles. Leveraging our extensive experience, and utilising real-life case studies, we explore how to link the outputs into career pathway development, develop interview questions, and support recruitment practices.

“I have had the good fortune to attend the Understanding SFIAV6 course online with Matthew Burrows and was quite impressed. During the 2 day course, Matthew explained practical aspects of leveraging SFIAV6 framework with use cases, real time examples and trends how people use SFIA to gain benefits.

“I also had the luxury to ask several questions that branched from basics to advance in nature which Matthew addressed with ease providing valuable insights and confidence.

“Getting the training directly under Matthew was a treat and I look forward to becoming an Accredited Consultant of SFIA. I would strongly recommend anyone who is interested to pursue SFIAV6 train under Matthew and BSM Impact. In summary, it has been real value for money!”
