CareerPlus is a free member benefit that allows you to plan and track your CPD. It consists of a CPD recording system, and an online tool to assess your IT and business skills.

Get started today - just login to the members area to manage your CPD profile or email CPD215 to cpd@ics.ie to receive your three-month free membership.

Manage your career, manage your brand – benefits to individuals

CareerPlus will help you measure and describe your competences against a recognised European standard. You can use the CPD tracker to record your achievements in both informal and formal learning. The professional profile you’ll build up will ultimately help you communicate your skills and knowledge to grab that promotion, new job or project you want to manage.

Your IT skills will be assessed against the European standard, the e-Competence Framework, and your business skills are assessed against the ICS Transversal Skills Framework.

You’ll also be able to match your skills against 23 common IT job profiles, to see how far you match towards a new career path. You’ll find out any skills you need to work on to be able to progress to the next level.

Managing your organisation’s resources – benefits to organisations

CareerPlus can help organisations of all sizes to manage their skills development process. This will help develop a career plan for staff as well as talent management for the organisation.

You’ll be able to see self-assessment profiles of staff to enable you to build project teams quickly and efficiently. Explore the 23 most common IT job profiles to create fully rounded job specifications and to assist in the interview process for new talent.
