The e-skills Passport is an on-line tool that enables individuals and organisations to assess current IT skills, identify gaps, and set learning targets and record improvement. e-skills Passport enables users to record achievements and re-visit their passports as skills improve. Organisations use e-skills Passport to get a snapshot of workforce IT skills and target training accordingly.
At the heart of e-skills Passport is an employer-defined framework of skills, which is linked closely to the IT User National Occupational Standards, upon which most IT training in the UK and all UK IT qualifications are based.
Users start by self-assessing their current skills against 15 common computing techniques by answering yes/no questions against five levels from inexperienced (very limited skills), foundation, intermediate, advanced and super-user (high skills levels). Users then go on to record achievements and learn new skills. They can revisit their passport to update, print and e-mail it.
