We have expanded our suite of innovative digital skills qualifications with Essential Digital Skills. Find out more.

The Government’s ‘Essential Digital Skills Framework’ (2019) states that within two decades, 90% of jobs will require some digital proficiency, yet 11.3 million people lack basic digital skills.

Nine out of ten jobs involve the use of computers. So how are you going to meet the growing demand for digital skills?

We have mapped our Digital Skills qualifications to the Department for Education’s new Essential Digital Skills Framework.
