Digital skills on par with reading and maths in Welsh curriculum

Welsh Assembly GovernmentFrom this school term digital skills will increasingly become a part of every element of the curriculum in Wales, Education Secretary Kirsty Williams announced today (Weds 21st Sep).

Changes to the curriculum mean digital skills will now be used through all parts of a pupil’s schooling and not just isolated to specific ICT or computer science classes.

The Welsh Government’s Digital Competence Framework is now available to all schools and follows two independent reviews that recommended changes.

The new approach means more than just using computers and aims to equip pupils with the digital skills they need and can apply in the real world in the years to come.
The changes aim to put Wales in a world-leading position of integrating digital skills across the curriculum. The framework will develop and adapt to keep pace with digital developments.
