Digital skills at Blackpool and The Fylde College

Digital skills are increasingly important in our lives. We need to use computers and digital devices to do many things that we used to do face-to-face.

And we can also now access all the world's information online. With this information you can get ahead in life.

Which means now more than ever you need basic digital skills.

Blackpool and The Fylde College wants to make sure that you feel confident using computers and digital devices.

That's why we have introduced Essential Digital Skills Qualifications (EDSQ).

What will I learn with EDSQ?

  • Using devices and handling information (includes how to store information)
  • Creating and editing
  • Communicating online (such as via Social Media)
  • Transacting (buying) online activities
  • Being responsible, safe and legal online

Where can I study EDSQ?

We'll be offering EDSQ at Seasiders Learning Centre.
