ECDL ‘Training Without Boundaries’ – Phase II - Romania
7 August 2012
The second phase of the multi-stakeholder ECDL initiative, ‘Training Without Boundaries’, to provide workplace ICT skills to individuals with motor disabilities, which commenced in April 2012, was recently concluded. Through this phase of the project, 7 persons with motor disabilities in District 1 of Bucharest were able to certify their computer skills to the internationally recognised ECDL standard. The broader aim of the project is to facilitate greater social integration for persons with motor disabilities through the acquisition of ICT skills.
The participants initially completed the four-module, essential skills certification, ECDL Start. Similar to the participants in first phase of the project, the second group reported that, upon completion of ECDL Start, they felt confident to go on to train for full ECDL certification (seven modules).
The candidates’ ECDL training was provided by a volunteer trainer, and facilities were provided by the participating project partners.
With its network of more than 700 Accredited Test Centres country-wide, and through its ‘ECDL Values Community’ ethos, ECDL Romania has developed an active presence in Romanian society, engaging in campaigns aimed contributing positively to the community by promoting social integration.
