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 effectively, building on
existing knowledge and motivating further learning. Pupils

sheets and Improving productivity.
WHY should I choose this subject?
It provides proof of digital literacy, and it increases your em-
ployability.

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.
WHICH subjects should I have an aptitude in?
A reasonable knowledge of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint
and Excel 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.
