Our Essential Digital Skills resource can be used as a stand-alone resource or in conjunction with tutor led teaching – how you use it is completely flexible. For Training Providers, FE and HE there are a number of ways to deliver this to your learners:

The Essential Digital Skills Qualification (EDSQ) is a new UK national standard that is available free to anyone over the age of 19.
