Essential Digital Skills Qualifications

Essential Digital Skills Qualifications are coming...

An estimated one in five adults lack basic digital skills. To address this skills gap, from August 2020 the Department for Education (DfE) is introducing an entitlement for adults to fully-funded digital skills qualifications.

These digital skills qualifications will be targeted at adults aged 19 plus and are intended to support adults to develop the digital skills they need for life, work or further study.

This short guide looks at these standards and how the new qualifications are being developed, and it also includes a handy checklist to help ensure you are ready to deliver them!
