Do you sometimes feel left behind in this new digital world?
Well you’re not alone; it’s estimated that one in five adults lack basic digital skills and struggle to cope with how technology has become so integrated in everyday life.
In response to this, the Government has introduced a new range of qualifications called Essential Digital Skills Qualifications (EDSQ).These qualifications are free to everyone aged 19 or over, regardless of income and we’re pleased to be offering them at Northern College, which is dedicated to improving adult skills for work and everyday life.

The Level 1 Essential Skills qualification will help you become an inclusive member of the digital world.
How will the course be delivered?
The course will be delivered on a residential basis, over two days and one night each week.The course will include a blend of classroom based activities and some individual study.
Northern College starts where you are, building on your life skills and experience. You don’t need a formal qualification to begin your studies with us. However, if this is your first course at Northern College, you will be contacted by our Student Services team to ensure the course is right for you.
