ICDL Asia aims to bridge the new digital divide between lifestyle skills and workplace skills among students in Singapore with a new partnership with ACP, a leading learning management system provider.

In September 2014, ICDL Asia established a partnership with ACP to launch a new ICDL Profile for Students into primary and secondary schools. This new ICDL Profile combines a selection of ICDL Base and Standard modules, and it covers the Baseline ICT Standards from the Singapore Ministry of Education (MoE). One of MoE’s top priorities in recent years is to ensure that all students receive relevant ICT skills to support them in both their education and in the future marketplace.

This goes in line with ICDL Asia’s vision of raising everyone’s digital proficiency, providing the digital skills needed in the workplace.

Tina Wu, General Manager of ICDL Asia comments, “We believe that the idea of the ‘digital native’ is a fallacy. Although the youth of today have access to the latest technology and gadgets, they still need to be taught how to use and apply digital skills that are needed in the workplace. We believe the new ICDL Profile for Students will be able to meet that need.” She adds, “ACP has a reputable relationship with schools in Singapore and we are happy to announce this collaboration.
