Accredit Transversal Skills
EU and UNESCO suggest an ecosystem model for validating skills without borders to enable flexible learning progression. To this end, adopting Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and open technical standards are best for issuing digital credentials that support data authenticity, portability, interoperability, security, and privacy.
Credential Platform for Educators
ValueCred offers a Credential Issuance Portal for educators to effortlessly issue Values-based Credentials* in global ecosystems that leverage DLT and comply with common standards. This enables learners to prove their skills instantly yet securely in career and education endeavours.
With our Learning Outcome Analytics, educators can track and monitor learners’ progress and accomplishments in acquiring transversal skills and values. Educators can identify the weak points of learning and proactively assist the learners in achieving their learning goals and objectives.
What is Values-based Credential?
- is a type of Micro-credentials, as recommended by the EU, a flexible, targeted way to promote personalised learning throughout life. It is also verifiable, for which authenticity can be cryptographically proved.
- accredit the mastery of Values and Skills, which consist of nine constructs that are defined and embedded in curriculum across different subject areas and countries (Read more: OECD Embedding Values in Curriculum)
- is awarded to learners when
i) they receive a significant amount of endorsements from their peers during group learning activities, or
ii) they consistently demonstrate excellent mastery of the skills and receive recommendations from educators.
These credentials are stackable and can be combined as desired to improve learners’ employability and skill sets. They also complement the existing qualification frameworks in empowering learners to forge personalised learning and career pathways.
Present Proven Skills
There is an increasing demand for Micro-Credentials, pinpointing skills and competencies, among learners and employers. When issued through DLT, its inherent immutability enables learners to prove their skills match and even share the same company value as requested by employers.
At ValueCred, the learner’s skills and values are described at a granular level with a standard data model. Learners receive personalised feedback on their proven skills in the Learning Report with each Values-based Credential. They can review their progress and find areas of improvement along the learning and career pathways.
Our platform also enables learners to combine and stack multiple Values-based Credentials with other verifiable credentials to showcase their skills and achievements as a Career Success Portfolio to improve their employability. Learners can easily control how much and with whom they want to share their portfolios, while employers can instantly verify the authenticity.
