A scheme to collect objective data on the underlying skills required to succeed as an IT professional is due to be launched on 25 October.

Scale 21 (Skills Capabilities Aptitudes in Learning Environments of the 21st Century), run by the Real Time Club Foresight Associate Programme, will be investigating issues and implementing some of the recommendations proposed by the DTI Information, Communications and Media Foresight Panel (MFP).

"The MFP provided a vision for IT in 2020 and we are picking up from there and making it a reality," said Denis Saunders, director of Calibrand, which will be facilitating the process.

In the autumn one of the programme's working groups will be canvassing 15,000 readers of Computer Weekly and members of the BCS, IEE, Imis and IAP. Those canvassed will be asked to participate in a pathfinder study and a range of aptitude tests to identify the underlying skills that make members of the IT profession successful.
