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+ and are intended to support adults to help develop the digital skills they need for life, work or further study.
From January 2021, this course will offer adults the opportunity to develop their digital skills with the Essential Digital Skills qualification. Students will be assessed in line with the national standards for Essential Digital Skills that cover five skills areas. The qualifications will be available at Entry, Level 3 and Level 1.
