Digital Competence Indicator

Integrate digital competences into profiles for (higher) education and work

Does a nurse know how to handle his patient’s electronic record? And can a farmer combine sensor data from different systems to choose an optimal approach? The demand for digital competencies is increasing in almost all professions. Our task is to have students enter the professional field prepared and digitally competent, allowing them to continue developing.

That’s what the Digital Competence Indicator is for: a tool to pay attention to the integration of digital competencies in competence profiles – in both training profiles in education and job profiles in the professional field. Developed by the Strengthening digital human capital zone.
