Event description

Description

The Digi series is an innovative suite of Computing qualifications awarded by NCC Education, UK – a well-established provider of IT and Business qualifications.

Each qualification is delivered based on an up-to-date computer science curriculum that supports the teaching and learning of digital literacy and computing for young learners. It covers core digital skills, coding, computational thinking and online safety at each stage which can be taken individually.

Digi offers the essential core skills for developing young learners into ‘computational digital thinkers’ of the future. All 4 stages of the Digi series are now available in Singapore!
