The computing curriculum requires that every child leaves school digitally literate. ECDL has become an important building block, equipping students with the IT skills they need to thrive in the digital world, whether they’re pursuing further education or employment.
Options is an exciting time for students as they start to take more control over what they wish to study and how that might affect what they do in the future.
ECDL is able to sit alongside other computing qualifications and can be implemented in a number of ways depending on the needs of students.
It is most beneficial when used to support learning in other core subjects; students enjoy using their new skills to produce, present and analyse their coursework with greater speed and accuracy.
