Standards

Built to open standards, Credentialate maps existing data to skills outcomes, creating structured data from data chaos, resulting in an aligned Skills Recognition Infrastructure

Your skills recognition infrastructure made visible

Credentialate acts as the web connecting an institution’s content, assessment and learning outcomes data to industry-defined skills, competencies and alignment to frameworks, providing you with a comprehensive and systematic Skills Recognition Infrastructure.

The Evolving Credential Ecosystem

The evolving credential ecosystem

With visibility of its Skills Recognition Infrastructure, education providers can, for the first time, clearly see the connection between the skills and competencies amassed throughout the learning process and how that directly connects the world of education to the modern world of work.

Learners at all stages are provisioned with verified proof of the skills they’ve obtained that will help them in their professional lives. Not just upon completion of their study, but as they progress through a course. Once in a position to apply for work, they can highlight relevant unique strengths and speak with more confidence about what they bring to a specific role beyond a letter grade.

Importantly, learners gain control of their credentials, allowing mobility of the evidence of their skills to travel with them in whatever direction they choose to take - whether that’s towards a job, further education or to consolidate their non-formal and formal education to strengthen their career prospects or self-employment. Ultimately, this increases the return on their education investment and their likelihood of participating in further learning throughout their lives.

What is personalised evidence?

Credentialate is the world’s first Credential Evidence Platform and currently the only digital badging platform that systematically provides personalised evidence - qualitative and quantitative evidence of learner-level achievement. This level of granular evidence equips the learner to identify, articulate and speak to their unique strengths, especially for learners outside of the top 2%.

Our recent market research survey revealed that only 33% of college graduates felt confident of their ability to speak to their strengths and differentiate themselves.

Why personalised evidence matters

The skills gained in a degree program should be front and centre rather than hidden behind a course name and a number of credit hours. Micro-credentials and digital badges with personalised evidence help learners move incrementally towards full-award credentials so that they can signal their competencies to employers sooner.

  • Mastery approach - by aligning the curriculum to skills and competencies, learners can fill the gaps in their learning and build towards mastery of a particular skill or competency
  • Career-aligned evidence record - with personalised evidence, learners can speak confidently to their skills and competencies and easily share proof of same
  • Strengthen recruitment strategy - as industry needs are the first consideration, graduates are job-ready as soon as they graduate, creating more competitive course offerings

  • Transparency of student learning - personalised evidence allows a Mastery approach to learning, helping learners move incrementally towards full-award credentials. They can signal their competencies to employers sooner, speak confidently to their skills and easily share proof of same not only at the end of the journey, but throughout
  • Evidence-driven continuous improvement - with full visibility of skills attainment, Credentialate provides the ability to identify current and potential gaps in skill coverage, supporting the accreditation process and driving evidence-backed continuous improvement
