Get Across the Skills Basics
Skills are the building blocks, the translation piece and the common language at the intersection of learners, learning institutions and employers.
The Skills Ecosystem is a dynamic and constantly evolving landscape. Credentialate sits at the centre of this ecosystem, and acts as the Skills Core, the connective tissue that integrates with each segment so that you can work within the entire ecosystem.
Credentialate makes skills visible, allowing connection from your curriculum to recognition of learning.
