Digital badges are the visual tokens and an online record and evidence of the learner's achievements.
They can be linked to portfolios, artefacts and work samples and provides the opportunity for individuals to tell and share verifiable stories about their skills.
Badges can also “stack” together to achieve other credentials, or link to pathways for education, employment or career progression.

To earn a digital badge you will need to complete a number of activities or tasks. These are known as earning criteria.
Earners will be advised of their achievement via email, and through communication with the coordinator of the specific digital badge.
Earners are able to share their badges with their employers, colleagues and networks on social media.
Once earned, digital badges are claimed from Credly’s Acclaim platform. Instructions on how to set up you account, and claim and share your badge are sent to each recipient.
For those who like to have printed copies of your achievements, there is printable version available to download for most badges.
