As part of the Digital Education Action Plan, the European Commission has actively explored the development of the European Digital Skills Certificate (EDSC), aiming to streamline the certification and recognition of digital skills across Europe by governments, employers, and stakeholders. The EDSC is built upon the European Digital Competence Framework (DigComp), a framework that supports the development of learning objectives, of self-assessment tools and certification of the digital skills, and remains adaptable to the dynamic digital landscape.
In September 2022, a feasibility study was launched to explore potential scenarios for the EDSC and its feasibility. In collaboration with NTT Data, Empirica and ALL Digital, the European Commission collected stakeholders' insights facilitated by the Digital Competence Certification Community of Practice (CoP) to execute the study. These insights have contributed to the comprehensive feasibility study, ensuring this incorporates the needs of the digital competence community.
Now, it's time to unveil the findings from two key areas of work related to the EDSC: the Feasibility Analysis outlined in Action 9 of the Digital Education Action Plan, and the Member States EDSC Pilot.The final results will be presented and debated by different stakeholders during an online event on Thursday, 7 December, 2023, from 10:00 to 13:00. This event is organised in the context of the European Year of Skills and all stakeholders interested in the EDSC are welcome to participate.
To join the webinar, kindly complete the registration form by Monday, 4 December at 17:00 CET. A confirmation email containing the webinar link will be sent out on Monday, 5 December.
