Abstract

The roles of worker and citizen demand that all school leavers be digitally literate. The recognition of this has resulted in ICT education beginning in primary schools. In a number of areas IT companies are working with educational establishments to integrate vendor qualifications into the curriculum. This paper considers the rationale for the introduction of such qualifications and considers one particular example. It debates the contribution such an initiative is likely to make to the perceived UK skills shortage and to the critical thinking ability required for citizens in the Information Society. 

 

Keywords: ICT, curriculum, skills, vocational, digital literacy, vendor qualifications
