Essential Digital Skills

Diagnostic Assessment and Resources

Written to the National Standards for Essential Digital Skills – Available August 2020

Following a report from the Department for Education, it is estimated that 1 in 5 adults lack basic digital skills. This is a worrying statistic, because given the accelerating pace of change in our technologically dependent society, these skills can only become ever more important.

Having been mapped to the Essential Digital Skills Framework, our latest course introduces students to the digital world, from using everyday devices to  solving technical issues. Covering five topic areas at both Entry Level and Level One, bksb’s diagnostic assessment, comprehensive learning resources and progress checks contain everything your learners will need, including videos, interactive activities and jargon-busting glossaries.   Fully compatible with desktop, tablet and mobile devices, our award-winning eLearning platform can also be accessed remotely in order to enable distance learning.
