GoFrameworks: Connecting people and skills for meaningful work
Skill and competency frameworks are emerging as a key way to organize work and to prepare the workforce for the future. Many models already exist and many more are being developed. These frameworks align people with desired careers and help them uncover and realize their own potential. Alignments can add significant value to micro-credentials and badges, helping describe learning and achievements using competencies and also Big Picture themes such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Linking people, skills, and job roles with badges helps navigate the world of work.
GoFrameworks.io is a connection hub for aligning badges to frameworks that make sense for badge issuer communities, such as in Canada. GoFrameworks is a partnership of CanCred.ca and Ibbaka that leverages Open Badge Factory and Ibbaka Talent technologies.
The GoFrameworks vision is to support the full cycle from Goals to Learning to Assessment to Recognition.
Gather - the most important skill and competency models in one place
Search - for jobs to see what is needed for success while helping employers find people
Align - badges with competency models, goals, skill profiles and ways of learning
Compare and remix - competency models and their parts to support new industries and emerging jobs
Models and Frameworks currently supported:
Ontario Essential Employability Skills
Shopify Remote Working Skills
Advanced Manufacturing (CMC 2020)
Design Thinking Competencies
UN Sustainable Development Goals
Over time we will add more Canadian and international competency models and frameworks, to align with more badges and other resources and activities for skills and learning. As we move beyond the proof of concept to full scale implementation we will provide:
Connections to other platforms
Granular search to help you find not just a competency model but the most relevant parts of that model
Mapping between the parts of different competency models
More and more open competency models, including ways for you to contribute open models
Ways to adapt and remix your own competency models
Additional integrations with other systems and other types of frameworks
Links from competency models to learning resources
Support for IMS, IEEE and other international standards. (This project currently supports the IEEE P1484.20 work on competency model definitions.
