Start your open badge adventure with Digitalme - a company who are now a part of the City & Guilds Group.

Digitalme provides credentialing services that enable organisations to improve confidence and capability of individuals by better defining, recognising and showcasing the ever-changing skills required of current and future workforces - helping build the lifelong & trusted richer picture of an individual’s development and achievements.


These developments and achievements are shown through Digital Credentials and Open Badges.

Open Badges are a new global standard to recognise skills & achievements across the web. They are radically changing the way we see qualifications; from abstract measures of knowledge towards a tool to connect talent with opportunities for employment, work experience and further education

Digital credentials help organisations to define, recognise and showcase staff and learner development :

• They provide a simple and easy way to organise and evidence progression and achievement, especially for non-formal and in-formal learning within practical/workplace settings

• By engaging and motivating learners online and via mobiles, they offer a flexible and cost-effective way to replace workbooks and portfolios of evidence

• They put you in total control of designing programmes that truly meet local and individual needs, that are then agile and responsive to future change

• Connecting employers into the design, delivery and assessment of digital credentials will help you meet major Ofsted requirements in this area

• Once earned, they stay with the individual for life, helping you to track earner progression and destinations once they leave your organisation

• Accreditation is available from City & Guilds and ILM for high quality programmes, adding further value to the learner and employers
