The Digital Badging Commission

Transforming how we recognise and reward

learning and skills development

Delivered in partnership

In a global first, Ufi VocTech Trust and The RSA have launched the Digital Badging Commission to broaden the understanding, development and adoption of digital badges by accrediting organisations and employers.

We aim to build a new consensus around the development and deployment of digital badges to recognise and reward learning and skills development, transforming the discussion about how we recognise and reward lifelong learning in the UK.

  • Building a movement towards greater understanding, development, and adoption of digital badges by accrediting bodies, policymakers, and employers, including other micro-credentialling providers outside of our mutual networks

  • Exploring the quality and interoperability of digital badges used by key awarding and accrediting organisations
  • Making the case for a lifelong digital record of learning using digital badges and micro-credentials

  • Examining the feasibility of applying QA frameworks to digital badges so that they could be used to reward flexible learning pathways (e.g. in line with the lifelong learning entitlement)
