Digital Skills and e-safety withdrawal

Adobe is removing support for Flash fully by the end of 2020. This means that they will stop updating the Flash Player beyond 2020 and any web-based products using Flash technology will eventually become redundant and stop working. As a result the Digital Skills and e-safety qualifications are going to be withdrawn. The last day for registering learners for these qualifications will be 31 August 2020 and the last day for certification will be 31 December 2020.

If you need more information about this update please get in touch by calling +44(0)1793 417445 or emailing bcssales@bcs.uk.
