Badge the UK
‘Badge the UK’ is using Mozilla Open Badges to enable the worldwide recognition of in-demand workplace skills and create new employment opportunities for young people.
Today learning happens everywhere and the skills learned outside of the formal curriculum are just as important to employers as qualifications. Badge the UK is a new project which will enable learners to demonstrate all their achievements using digital badges.
A year into the project, DigitalMe share the impact open badges are creating in schools.
Run by DigitalMe and supported by Nominet Trust, Badge the UK will help teachers, employers and social enterprises to badge their learning programmes and provide an easy way for any teacher to award the badges they create nationwide.
Through a partnership with Makewaves, every young person will be provided with a badge portfolio page to help them share their achievements with employers and colleges. Young people will be able to share their badges across the web, on any website which supports the Mozilla Open Badge Standard.
