9 9 Using SFIA Framework SFIA licence the framework to academic institutions If you exploit SFIA commercially, to support the sale of your products or services to clients, you will need to pay a licence fee Individuals (including academics and students) have free registration for personal use for CPD For organisations or individuals using SFIA only as a resource
for their own management or development, SFIA licences are free of charge See http://www.sfia-online.org/get-sfia/choose-a-licence/ 10 Tech Partnerships 2014 Draft NOS for Discussion Data Analysis Levels (e.g.) ESKITP802301 Assist in Delivering Routine Data Analysis Studies ESKITP802401 Design and Implement Data Analysis Studies
ESKITP802501 Manage Data Analysis Services ESKITP802601 Lead the Delivery of the Data Analysis Capability, Strategy and Framework Performance Criteria Knowledge and Understanding 11 Programme Design Impact (1) Conceptual development guidelines (coverage)
Develop stretching curricula Some U/G work can be at SFIA level 7 (e.g. Set strategy)! Develop CPD practice for career development Choosing career pathways Planning areas of study Recognizing and evidencing acquired skills for job application Potential for accreditation (subject to fees?) 12
Programme Design Impact (2) Module designs emphasise soft skills (as well as hard) Curiosity
Problem solving Creativity Collaboration Story telling Communication Continuous Research 13 Approach Applied to BSc (Hons) IT
BSc (Hons) Analytics (Joint Honours) MSc Big Data Analytics 14 Programme Operation Impact Embed employability skills development into all modules Using the new SAS / University certificates of competence Highly enthusiastic students High levels of achievement (75% 2:1 and 1st )
High levels of employment following graduation some during final year (after placement year) 15 Session ID #3201 16
