In Poland, digital literacy is increasingly recognized as a cornerstone for personal and professional development. The ICDL Foundation, in collaboration with its national operator, the Polish Information Processing Society (PTI), plays a crucial role in advancing digital skills across the country, aligning with the European Digital Competence Framework (DigComp).
A notable achievement is the explicit mention of the ICDL, administered by PTI, in the guidelines published by the Polish Ministry of Education for the funding perspective 2014-2020. These guidelines specify qualifications eligible for projects funded through the Polish allocation of European Social Funds (ESF). This acknowledgment highlights the significance of ICDL as a recognized and valued digital skills certification, ensuring its inclusion in educational initiatives and projects supported by ESF.
As Poland continues its commitment to fostering digital literacy, the partnership between the ICDL Foundation and PTI contributes significantly to equipping individuals with essential digital competencies. The emphasis on aligning with European standards underscores the broader goal of preparing the Polish population for the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital age.
