Digital literacy holds paramount importance in Malta’s educational landscape, and the ICDL Foundation plays a pivotal role in shaping the nation’s digital competence. The National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE) in Malta, recognizing the significance of digital skills, mapped ICDL to the Malta Qualifications Framework since 2010.
This mapping initiative underscores Malta’s commitment to integrating globally recognized digital competencies into its education system. ICDL Malta’s collaboration with the Malta Qualifications Council exemplifies a proactive approach to ensure that the ICDL program aligns with the Malta Qualifications Framework. The criteria considered in this process encompassed the international qualification’s structure, syllabus, learning outcomes, and assessment methods.
By integrating ICDL into the Malta Qualifications Framework, Malta not only acknowledges the crucial role of digital literacy but also ensures that individuals in the country have access to a standardized and globally recognized certification. This collaborative effort between ICDL Malta and national education authorities contributes significantly to Malta’s goal of fostering a digitally literate society aligned with international standards, as reflected in the European Digital Competence Framework (DigComp).
