A National Digital Talent Policy has been approved by the Government of Rwanda. The policy states that all employees in the civil service, and workers at government-owned companies, will undergo training and certification with globally accepted digital literacy providers. Furthermore, it states that new job entrants must have, at least, a basic level certificate from a globally accepted digital literacy provider.

ICDL Africa had signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2015 with the Ministry of Youth and ICT (MYICT), in which it committed to support the development of the policy in the country. The General Manager of ICDL Africa was invited to a workshop organised by MYICT that brought together partners of the Ministry to share ideas and contribute to the digital talent policy development, and also took part in reviewing the developed policy document.
