  22. Outputs of Professionalism Task Force Meeting – Fri 11th April • The Current European Perspective on IFIP Matters • Europe is too culturally diverse to accept a single imposed professionalism standard • There is a need to conduct a meta analysis of what is in the European space already • The IFIP Model is not incompatible, and is complimentary to: • MS certifications • EUCIP • National Certification of Professionals • Difference between the “Anglo Saxon” and “Continental European” approach/outlook • The Role of EQF ? / Bologna Process • There is no tradition of code of ethics/practice/conduct in Europe (difficult to agree) • Degree of Overlap with CBOK and EUCIP Professionalism

  23. Outputs of Professionalism Task Force Meeting – Fri 11th April • Thought Provoking Comments ? • Europe is too culturally diverse to have a common approach to professionalism • We should have a Laissez Faire attitude to IFIP • The CITP program is driven by a sense of self importance amongst a limited number of Individuals from the IT domain • Will CEPIS be embarrassed if IFIP have success in Commonwealth countries and then present their success at a high level to the European Commission • Is the involvement of IEEE / ACM diluting/expanding the area of Informatics Professionalism beyond a manageable level • Should there be a formal responsibility to the end user • Is IT business ultimately determined by Finance and Lawyers, from a market driven perspective • The ICT players are essential for any professionalism campaign • One way costs money (social responsibility) / there other is about making money

  24. Outputs of Professionalism Task Force Meeting – Fri 11th April • What is the problem we are trying to solve? • IT Practise not viewed as “real profession” • Low esteem • not attractive to students • Little sense of responsibility to end-user • No ownership of “fitness for purpose” • Progress from Professional Skills to Professional Practise

  25. Outputs of Professionalism Task Force Meeting – Fri 11th April • What should the European Approach to Professionalism be ? • (Independent of IFIP actions) • We can’t be arbiters on behaviour • Is there an opportunity costs for CEPIS members not being involved – Probably Not • What are we trying to solve ? / Why are we trying to solve this Problem ? • Define Common criteria for National bodies on Professional • Skills & Education • Capability • Quality of Practice • CEPIS should be advocated that this is reflected into the EQF • CEPIS must then advocate why we propose this (economy / society) • CEPIS secretariat will then approach Commission • THEN CEPIS can look at creating a Symposium

  26. Outputs of Professionalism Task Force Meeting – Fri 11th April • How should CEPIS interact with I3P? • Influence from the inside • Needs of European Member Societies • Cooperate on “Body of Knowledge” with EuCIP Professional • Facilitate, not fund • Not a “channel to market”
