Designed with teachers in mind

ICDL has been designed for you. Free resources are included for teachers as well as easy set up, online guidance and a friendly support team on hand.


There are many free resources out there today. But the quality isn’t always guaranteed, assessment is inconsistent and it can be difficult to tell what’s what.

This is where ICDL is different. ICDL certification programmes are designed and approved by academics and industry experts from around the world according to ICDL quality assurance standards. Rigorous test design methodologies mean that students must demonstrate their digital competence in order to earn their ICDL certificate.

Over 1 million people in Ireland have already engaged with ICDL. Hundreds of schools, colleges and universities have adopted ICDL to build and certify their students’ digital skills.

All students need the basic skills in using a computer and Office applications safely and effectively, but they can also go so much further with ICDL.

ICDL offers the flexibility for you to choose any combination of over 25 modules to fit your students’ needs. The most popular modules for schools are listed below.
