What is the government reform?

The Department for Education’s basic digital skills reform aims to support adults at risk of being left behind in the increasingly digital world. The reform introduces an entitlement (in England) to full funding for adults with no or low digital skills - and the development of new qualifications based on national standards setting out the digital skills people need to get on in life and work.
