Is this course for you?
This course is specifically designed for adults to enable them to develop the digital skills and knowledge needed to benefit them in their personal lives and support them in their career aspirations. These qualifications are suitable for all ages and support the development of key digital skills such as using devices, creating and editing digital media, using technology to communicate, buying and transacting online, and how to stay safe and secure when using technology.
Essential Digital Skills qualifications (EDSQs) will be automatically funded for adults (16-19 and 19+ employed or unemployed) who do not have the basic digital skills they need for life and work.
No previous formal qualifications are required for entry to these qualifications. You will be assessed by completing a scenario task-based assessment, answer some questions and be observed using devices.
This is the level 1 qualification – it is advisable before starting the course to talk to your tutor to make sure that this is the right level for yourself.
