Assessment Methods

  • Portfolio of Evidence

  • Why choose this qualification?

    The Basic Digital Skills Report 2018 published following a Digital Skills survey conducted by Ipsos Mori (commissioned by Lloyds Banking Group) found that around 4.3 million (8%) of the UK population have no Basic Digital Skills and 11.3 million adults (21%) do not have all five Digital Skills of:

    1. Managing information
    2. Problem solving
    3. Communicating
    4. Creating
    5. Transacting.

    Having no or lacking digital skills is a barrier for adults in their careers. The report found that those without/lacking digital skills:

    • earn on average £13,000 less than those with all five digital skills
    • are less likely to progress in their careers
    • miss out from significant savings that can be made through online transactions

    This small, single unit, qualification has been developed to support learners to develop digital skills within a life-related context. It is based on the Essential Digital Skills Framework.
