Why digital credentials?

Digital credentials enable education and training providers to transform the way they assess and recognise learning and skills. By designing, creating and issuing digital credentials educators can expand their businesses and better meet the needs of modern students and employers.

One thing ripe for change in the three-way relationship between educators, students and employers is the role of credentials – or more to the point – their digital equivalent. 

Digital credentials promise to transform education by turning real knowledge and skills into digital artefacts that are more relevant to modern employers and that can be shared more readily by modern students.

What providers can do

You can issue digital credentials against the units, courses or qualifications you already deliver. You will still need to adhere to AQF regulatory standards but can issue digital credentials in a way that is complimentary to this process.


Create or recognise smaller pieces of bite-sized learning in line with the skills needs of employers, which can act as credit towards a longer course or qualification.


Unlock the potential of non-accredited learning or alternative digital credentials to expand your business in line with a growing shift towards work-relevant learning.
