The European Digital Competence Framework, also known as DigComp, offers a tool to improve citizen’s digital competence. Today, being digitally competent means that people need to have competences in all areas of DigComp.
The Digital Competence Framework can help with self-evaluation, setting learning goals, identifying training opportunities and facilitating job search.
The report called DigComp 2.0, first published in 2013, presents a list of 21 competences. It focuses on the conceptual reference model, new vocabulary and streamlined descriptors and has become a reference for many digital competence initiatives at both European and Member State levels.
The DigComp 2.1 (available here for download) is a further development of the Digital Competence Framework for Citizens. Based on the reference conceptual model published in DigComp 2.0, it now presents the latest version of the Digital Competence Framework for Citizens (updated in 2016 and 2018) plus explanation of the 8 proficiency levels and new examples of use.
