To increase the visibility and accessibility of the e-Competence Framework (e-CF), we have created the ‘e-CF Explorer’.

This tool allows the user to: 

  • Browse the framework diagram to read the descriptors of each competency 
  • Select roles to view the competency/levels that define them, as well as the role and competency descriptions 
  • Create his/her own custom profile (a set of competencies/levels) to be saved as a pdf to the personal device.  

The tool is developed from ITPE resources and is available for everyone free of charge. Its purpose will is to raise awareness and facilitate the understanding of the e-CF. 

The e-CF is an EU standard that can be used by public and private companies as well as the education sector as a common language for describing digital competences of IT professionals. The accompanying ICT Profile tool brings the e-CF into practice by grouping its competences under specific ICT roles. The e-CF 4.0 was published at the end of 2019, but the standard is still not widely known across Europe. We see its potential to be adopted broadly and to facilitate digital transformation, hiring and upskilling of new professionals as well as better communication between industry and education.
