Digital literacy stands as a cornerstone in Portugal’s educational and professional landscape, emphasizing equal opportunities, access to quality digital educational resources, and the development of essential digital skills. The Portugal Digital Mission Structure underscores the integration of digital education technologies across basic and secondary education, aiming at enhancing continuous learning quality and fostering innovation in the educational system.

The ICDL Foundation plays a pivotal role in supporting Portugal’s digital literacy initiatives. Aligned with the European Union’s DigComp framework, ICDL’s internationally recognized certification programs provide a structured pathway for individuals to acquire and demonstrate essential digital skills. The emphasis on equal opportunities in access to quality digital educational equipment and investment in teachers’ digital skills aligns cohesively with ICDL’s mission to empower individuals for personal and professional fulfillment.

Moreover, in addressing the dynamic needs of the labor market, Portugal’s commitment to professional training and reskilling, including collaboration with higher education institutions and companies, resonates with ICDL’s goal of minimizing the impact of automation by fostering employment in the digital domain. The shared vision for digital inclusion and literacy, particularly in training adults in basic digital skills, aligns with ICDL’s overarching mission to bridge the digital divide and unlock the benefits of digitization for all segments of the population.
