Recognition for In-House Training with Digital Credentials


Recognition for In-House Training with Digital Credentials – Assured

City & Guilds and ILM have launched their new training recognition service - Assured, which provides the City & Guilds quality stamp to an organisation's in-house training, assessing it against their benchmark model. The benchmark model has been developed in partnership with industry experts so that organisations can have the confidence and reassurance that their training is of the highest quality.

The service allows organisations to gain external validation from a global vocational awarding organisation, recognising quality training no matter the content, format or length. Uniquely, all leaners will receive a Digital Credential so they can readily share all the skills, knowledge and experience they have attained as part of their training.

Hilary Scott-Ker - City & Guilds Business Development Manager said ‘’Through the use of digital credentials employees can demonstrate the acquisition of new skills. The badging provides an alternative solution for business who want to empower their workforce and recognise the informal skills that are gained on the job. Assured & Digital Credentials seeks to meet the global trend of recognising skills gained outside the current formal education system.’’
