Being competent in digital skills is no longer a choice, but a necessity for keeping up with both economic and social change. Given the growing importance of ICT in the context of a global economy, and the enormous potential of this sector in terms of creating employment, there is a need for a common framework that enables citizens to live and work in society but also allows businesses, or employers in the tech sector, to identify which individuals possess the skills they require.

Digital Jersey is supporting research into the potential for Jersey to adopt the EU's common digital competency framework for citizens.

Research March/April 2015
