Introducing ECDL Compass

ECDL Compass, provided by BCS in conjunction with ECDL, allows BCS accredited centres to determine a learner’s IT skill level through an indicative test, in only 30 minutes. The output from the test will show how the learner has performed at Level 1 and Level 2 in office packages Word, Excel and PowerPoint, helping learners to be enrolled on the correct level of qualification. This allows targeted learning and development, and reports can be used as evidence of assessing a learner to support funding applications.
