Digital credentials are a verified, shareable, and data rich representation of a learner's achievements. They provide an easy way to communicate what a learner has been verified to know and can do, without requiring an explanation or a CV.
Your learners will be able to share their achievements through social medial platforms, showcasing their achievements and competencies where it matters and make their skills visible to the world.
Stand out from the crowd
Representing their skills as digital credentials gives learners a way to share their abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time. 50 million digital credentials have been earned and managed on Credly, with over 700,000, shared every month by badge earners all over the world.
Digital credentials have built-in metadata that provide details of skills and competencies and the requirements to achieve these credentials. This provides employers and professional networks with concrete evidence of what learners had to do to earn their credentials and what they're now capable of.
Remove stress from CV writing
Choosing what to include and what to leave off CVs can be overwhelming for learners.
Digital credentials take all that hassle away!
The metadata of skills and competencies within these credentials help learners to build a better professional picture of who they are and the skills they have to offer. This helps take away the struggle of CV writing and gives learners a better understanding of their own strengths and builds confidence in articulating these.
Maximise progression opportunities
Credly’s digital credentials platform can connect learners to job opportunities based on their skills sets as it gives them access to live job insights. This means they can search job listings based on the skills they've gained and see which employers are hiring.
Digital credentials also help employers to easily identify candidates with the competencies to match their recruitment needs through the detailed metadata of skills and competencies which uses language frequently used in job descriptions and is recognised by employers.
