ECDL Mapped to French National Qualifications Framework

ECDL has been mapped to the French national qualification framework. The mapping to the National Register of Professional Qualifications means that ECDL candidates in France will be able to access funding to build their digital skills under the Compte Personnel de Formation (CPF), an initiative that is open to millions of French employees and job seekers. ECDL is mapped as a transversal qualification - it is not restricted to a specific domain or sub-domain, but covers all areas of professional activity.

In addition to the opportunity to gain funding to take ECDL, the mapping to the framework makes it much easier to compare ECDL to other qualifications, both in France and around Europe. ECDL is mapped to a number of qualifications frameworks around the world, and ECDL Foundation actively engages in the development of the European Qualifications Framework.

Under recent reforms to the CPF, all training that is funded by the initiative must be registered on the National Register of Professional Qualifications. The recognition opens the opportunity to take ECDL under the CPF to workers and job seekers from all professional sectors and in all regions of France.
