WHAT is the subject about?
ECDL is the benchmark for digital literacy in educational systems around the
globe. It equips students with the skills to use a computer confidently and effec-
tively, building on existing knowledge and motivating further learning. Pupils
study units in Word Processing, Presentation, Spreadsheets and Improving
productivity.
WHY should I choose this subject?
It provides proof of digital literacy, and it increases your employability. It is an
industry standard recognised qualification.
WHEN and HOW am I assessed?
Four online unit tests. All tests can be taken at any time throughout the course
and retaken multiple times until a Level 2 pass (equivalent to an GCSE grade
C or Grade 5) or higher is achieved. As such, the course will be completed
before the rest of your GCSE examinations.
WHICH subjects should I have an aptitude in?
A reasonable knowledge of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel would be an
advantage, but you will be taught everything you need to know.
WHERE could this subject take me in the future?
Really good for anyone wanting an apprenticeship or employment with training.
Equally useful to anyone going on the FE College and University as the course
will improve your ICT usage skills.
WHO do I need to speak to for more information?
