Recognising your Learning with Digital Badges

These training sessions intend to see that participating staff will be awarded with a specially designed “digital badge” or “micro credential” based on non-formal and informal learning achievements. This digital badge is designed to be robust and secure so that they cannot be counterfeited, and that the learning to which it testifies can be demonstrated based on submitted evidence. This digital badge can be used across a range of digital spaces including online resumes, e-porfolios and professional networking sites like LinkedIn.

The process for achieving the badge will be as follows:

Submitting Evidence

The evidence which you have to submit will be clearly identified to you in the sessions. This evidence can also, if you wish, be "attached" to your badge so people who can see your badge can also see the evidence which you submitted against it. Training and information will also be provided to show you how you can present your badge on, e.g., linkedin and other platforms.
