Credentialate features - prepare for the skills economy
For educators to remain competitive in a diverse marketplace - one increasingly crowded with smaller, more agile competitors - micro-credentials and digital badges have found themselves at the forefront of the new skills economy. This requires a shift in how traditional institutions approach which fields of study, courses and course content to offer. Education offerings today need to be developed with backwards-design thinking. Start with the skills and competencies employers want, align them to micro-credentials that teach them, then provide credible evidence of learning that can be quickly verified.
More and more, learners want the flexibility and portability of digital badges to share evidence of their achievements. They seek ways to integrate their non-formal and formal education, and need centralised storage and management of their credentials to differentiate themselves in job markets effectively.
The power of Credentialate, lies in its ability to:
- Collect and aggregate learner data from multiple sources into a centralised system
- Align data to in-demand skills and competencies, frameworks and labour market data
- Issue a personalised evidence record with qualitative and quantitative detail
- Track and manage competency achievement outside of course silos
More than that, Credentialate:
- Utilises automation and templates to reduce human workload and enable scale workload
- Integrates non-formal and formal education into a single, framework-aligned evidence record
- Reduces the time and cost of launching skills-based micro-credentials
A brief overview
How Credentialate works
Credentialate connects to Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and assessment platforms to capture learner performance data. It assesses competency achievement against an institution’s models to determine learners’ levels of mastery
Credentialate uses automation to collect and aggregate learning data, then issues digital badges via leading badge providers. Educators can issue, track and manage attainment of competencies from a single cloud-based platform
Credentialate creates a verifiable Evidence Record with qualitative and quantitative personalised evidence of an individual learner’s achievements. Learners can share evidence of their capabilties and build towards Mastery of sought-after workplace skills and comptencies
Skills-first evidence alignmentTraditionally, digital credentials reference only their generic earning criteria. With Credentialate, the world’s first Credential Evidence Platform, education providers can include a personalised evidence page with qualitative and quantitative detail of achievement.
Now, Credentialate has developed Skills-First Evidence Alignment, in recognition and support of the burgeoning skills economy, as a way for education providers to apply backwards-design to micro-credential development.

Creating an Industry-Aligned Micro-Credentials Framework
Like the rest of the world, Australia is not immune to the economic, social and technological forces shifting and shaping the need for transformation in post-secondary education. The focus is on building an agile and adaptable workforce with flexible options for skill acquisition. Australia has a national system of qualifications, encompassing higher education, vocational education and training (VET), and school-based education, underpinned by the Australian Qualifications Framework.
In this conference session, the presenters will discuss the development of a robust, industry-aligned and scalable micro-credentials framework.
