Digital Badges

  • What is it?

    We’re one of the newest Cities of Learning to provide digital badging.

    Digital Badges give employers and support organisations an innovative, simple, and visual way of recognising non-accredited learning, helping to recruit and promote employee skills and achievements.

    They can be shared through a range of social media channels, on CV’s, or via messenger.

    Digital Badges can be customised and tailored to all types of learning - from formal classroom delivery to informal events or workshops. There are no limitations on subject matter or the creative content of a Digital Badge and all Badges are endorsed by City & Guilds.
