ECDL Extra – European Computer Driving License at Westward Pathfinder

Course description

It's what employers want - employers need people who can contribute to achieving goals in the most efficient and productive way.

ECDL gives you the computer skills to do this. That’s why it is recognised and valued by companies around the world as the benchmark in IT user competence. Over 2 million people have taken ECDL in the UK alone.

ITQ stands for Information Technology Qualification. An ITQ is a nationally recognised Qualification for IT Users which enables you to demonstrate competence in the use of IT in a working or voluntary place. ITQ is primarily aimed at IT users and not professional IT staff such as engineers and developers.

Courses are free for those looking for work and in receipt of work related benefit.
