Micro-credentials and alternative credentials have been embraced by higher education, as a way to connect with new learner populations, working people and those seeking to upskill or reskill. 

Higher education has much to offer to the development of workplace skills in support of a strong workforce – if they are willing to embrace new ways of thinking and working. 

Credentialate can help you to, at scale, identify the existing skills in your curriculum, align them to in-demand skills and enable you to provision your learners with powerful digital credentials that boost their employability.

Credentialate Credentials Ecosystem

Connecting learner achievement

In Credentialate, learner achievements are collected from multiple sources, such as student information systems, learning management systems, assessment platforms and other sources, and collated into a transparent administrative dashboard.

Achievements are given context and meaning by embedding qualitative and quantitative data, artefacts, framework alignment, job or labour market data and more.

Making skills and competencies visible

Skills and competencies are made visible to multiple stakeholders through dashboards and Credentialate’s Personal Evidence Record. Education providers can see and show proof of the skills taught in a curriculum and identify where improvements can be made. Learners can clearly identify and show proof of what they know and can do and share their achievements with others.

Building bridges between data silos

Learner data is typically locked into data silos and in disparate formats that don’t use a common language. As a result the data can’t flow between systems and data becomes dark or unusable.

Using skills as the translocation piece increases data utility and is specifically structured to enable data flow that bridges the gap between system silos, components of the skills ecosystem and education and work.

Smoothing learner transitions through skills data

Once performance and assessment data has been collected, ordered and structured to agreed standards, learners can be awarded digital credentials that hold true meaning and relevancy – to them and prospective employers. Learners get greater perceived value from their studies and gain learner agency.

With enhanced data mobility, learners credentials can travel with them, regardless of where their journey takes them. They can see what they have accomplished and plan for their future. With stackable credentials, as their learning needs shift and change to meet the future of work, you gain access to lifelong learners.
