Here is a link to my article published in edition 68 of School's Week. The headline in the online version wholly misses the point that ECDL is not a three day qualification but one which can accredit those pupils who do not have other qualifications in ICT with their prior learning giving them something which has currency with employers and internationally and indeed is promoted by our won government's National Careers Service. The article also asks some important questions of relevance to Ofqual's recent correspondence with awarding bodies.
