The e-CF Explorer is an initiative of IT Professionalism Europe (ITPE) with the aim to increase visibility and accessibility of the e-Competence Framework. It is part of ITPE’s pledge to the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition to promote this European standard to different users across the EU.

The European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) provides a reference of 41 competencies as required and applied in an IT professional work context, using a common language for competencies, skills, knowledge, and proficiency levels that is applied and understood across Europe.

Use this interactive tool to explore the competencies and the 30 ICT Professional Role Profiles identified by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN). These are typical roles performed by ICT Professionals in any organisation, covering the full ICT business processes using the e-CF as the basis for competence identification and illuminates each ICT Professional Profile with a number of components including work outcomes or “Deliverables”.
