Innovative Solutions for Skills Recognition

Digitalising Micro Credentials

With TEC funding available for micro credentials it’s now time for TEO's to think about how technology can support the verification of these current and emerging skills. The most valuable credentials are portable, shareable, verified and data rich. The earners of these micro credentials need to be able to apply the skills immediately to become more productive and efficient. And the employers want to be able to verify the learner’s skills.

If you are looking for a technology solution that maximises security and portability for earners of credentials and allows seamless authentication and validation of skills by employers – Credlys digital credentialing platform is an answer.

Empowering organisations to officially recognise individuals for demonstrated competencies and skills provides people with the opportunity to connect their verified abilities to opportunities. The Credly solution is the leading digital credential solution making talent more visible. Digital credentials are becoming the currency of choice in an international marketplace of knowledge and skills. We believe that digital credentials will improve equity and expand access to opportunity, including for populations and individuals who have been traditionally underserved and overlooked.

By digitally recognising micro credentials, earners will be able to share and validate their achievements & take them with them in their online profile. With training and development becoming a major draw card for Generation Z, organisations offering micro credentials and innovative technology will provide a draw card for the Gen Z digital natives.

The Sussex Downs International case study highlights how industry and education worked together to bridge the skills gap.
