The SFIA Skills for the Information Age tool identifies and describes these in detail.

The take on of Apprentices continues to attract a lot of publicity. However, setting up an apprentice scheme is not easy. We must make it easier for businesses, particularly small enterprises, to take on apprentices. Setting up an apprenticeship programme is a major undertaking that few small businesses have the scale to address, which is why Dynamo is working to develop the North East IT Apprentice Hub. In setting up this Hub we will be working closely with e-Skills and the National Apprentice Service to help to streamline the process for recruiting and make it easier for small IT businesses to take on apprentices.
