ECDL 'Excellence Award' for Portuguese government enhancing ICT skills of public sector workforce

Recently CEO of the ECDL Foundation, Damien O’Sullivan presented the ‘Excellence Award’ in Portugal to Portuguese Minister for Labour and Social Solidarity, Ms. Helena André for 10 successful years of implementation of the ECDL certification programme as a measure to enhance the ICT skills of the public sector workforce in Portugal.

CEPIS supports ECDL as the leading global IT skills certification and commends this example of the strong cooperation between the Portuguese government and ECDL. This could be replicated by other countries to promote the development of digital literacy and skills in Europe.
