To help get you ready for College, we have created this online Digital Skills course. After working through it, you will have all the digital skills needed to help you make the best possible start to your College journey.

Before you start!

Before you start, please work through the short knowledge check. This tool will help you to evaluate what you already know, where to focus your learning when working through the course, and if you need additional support before starting College.

Essential Digital Skills Framework

The Essential Digital Skills Framework defines the skills needed to safely benefit from, participate in, and contribute to the digital world of today and the future. The framework also includes a section on ‘foundation’ skills, which are typically required by those not currently using digital technology or using it in limited ways.

The course is split into 6 sections, each based on a key part of the framework. Please be sure to complete each section of the course materials, including the quiz.
