A consultation on the way we understand and measure the basic digital skills required for adults has been launched.
The consultation focuses on the basic digital skills adults need to thrive in a digital world, providing easier access to work and education. It proposes a framework which has been remodelled to reflect the significant changes in technology that have taken place since it was originally created.
The Department for Education plans to use the updated Framework as the basis for developing new national standards for basic digital skills.
The deadline for responses to the consultation is 20 March 2018
