Announcing the brand new ICDL Digital Citizen programme


There are still many people in Ireland who lack the skills and confidence they need to participate fully in our digital society. This week we are launching Digital Citizen, the successor to our successful EqualSkills programme, to help bridge this digital divide.

Designed for complete beginners
The Digital Citizen programme outlines the basic skills needed to use a computer and the Internet. This specially designed module teaches candidates how to complete everyday tasks in a confident way. The programme has been created for all learners, regardless of status, education, age or ability.

Complete module pack
Digital Citizen learners receive comprehensive printed workbooks to guide them as they learn. Digital Citizen tutors provide extra support in this fun and informal programme.

Digital Citizen is available to purchase as a complete standalone module pack, including printed workbooks delivered to your centre. Learners receive their Digital Citizen e-certificate upon successful completion of the course. Courseware is based on the commonly used Windows 10 and Office 2016 suite.

Find out more and get started
To find out more about this new programme and get started if you are new to offering ICDL, visit the Digital Citizen page on our website here.

If you have offered EqualSkills before, you’ll find Digital Citizen all set up for you to place your order in the administration portal. A quick guide to Digital Citizen is available from the Manage Downloads section, under Digital Skills.

If Digital Citizen will be a new offering for you but you are an existing Accredited Test Centre, you can apply for the product via the ICDL Connect admin portal in the usual way.
