Qualifications are a good way to show other people what you have achieved, they look good on your C.V. and can really help you get on in work.

Completing a learndirect course doesn't automatically give you a qualification, but it can help you work towards one if you want to.

Many of our courses are designed to cover the content of nationally recognised qualifications or certificates.

Below are the qualifications you could gain by completing appropriate learndirect courses.

The European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) qualification from the British Computer Society is recognised internationally by computer users everywhere. Holding an ECDL will show the world that you have a good working knowledge of computers, skills in a wide range of common software packages, a recognised and up-to-date qualification and the self-motivation to learn new skills.

The ECDL qualification consists of 7 modules each followed by a modular test. The learndirect courses you will need to successfully complete in order to gain your ECDL qualification include :-
  • IT2 Introducing Computers (Double module course)
  • IT2 Word Processing
  • IT2 Spreadsheets
  • IT2 Databases
  • IT2 Presentations
  • IT2 Electronic Communication
All of the courses use Microsoft software packages, so you can be sure that they are going to be relevant at work or at home.
