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
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.
