    In 2008 JISC began its “Business & Community Engagement (BCE) Programme” to support institutions in their strategic management of relationships with external partners and clients
    This project “Training, CPD and Staff Exchange” is one of several under the BCE Programme
    It was also very aware of the Government's agenda to build the knowledge economy, and in response to a growing understanding that the emerging profession of ‘Knowledge Transfer’ was fragmented and lacking in agreed frameworks for skills assessments and standards

    • 18. Mapping of JISC Advance services, resources, events and activities against framework (Other resources and frameworks will be considered and added later where appropriate)

  • The Assessment Tool
    Must be available on-line
