Accredit Transversal Skills
To recognise and validate a broader range of learning outcomes in the era of lifelong learning, the EU and UNESCO suggest a digital credential ecosystem model for validating skills without borders. Digital credentials should be issued in a verifiable format that guarantees data authenticity and cross-border interoperability. This is enabled by leveraging Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and open technical standards.
Credential System for Educators
ValueCred offers educators a Credential Issuance Portal to issue Values-based Credentials with ease, while complying with common standards and leveraging global ecosystems powered by DLT. Our system provides great flexibility and security, allowing educators to accredit learners’ soft skills under the existing curricula.
Our Learning Outcome Analytics enables educators to track and monitor learners’ progress and accomplishments in acquiring transversal Values and Skills. This helps identify areas where learners may need additional assistance and proactively support them in achieving their learning goals and objectives.
Present Proven Skills
To enter today’s workplace, learners must demonstrate not only the requisite skills but also a strong alignment with the company values of prospective employers. Values-based Credentials (VbC) serve as proof of learners’ competencies and pinpoint their mastery of Values and Skills at a granular level. By storing VbCs in an EU digital ID wallet, learners have full control over how to present them flexibly and securely across borders.
Credential Wallet for Learners
With VbCs stored in ValuesCred’s wallet, our Skills Acquisition Analytics would provide personalised feedback on how the learners have mastered their skills. The insights enable learners to reflect on their level of mastery and identify areas for improvement, fostering a self-learning mindset.
In our wallet, learners can create Career Success Portfolios by stacking and combining multiple VbCs with other credentials, to highlight their specific set of Values and Skills that meet the employers’ needs. By presenting tailored portfolios that cater to different job applications, learners can confidently showcase their expertise, enhancing their employability.

is a type of Micro-Credentials that certify the learning outcomes of short-term learning experiences, as recommended by the EU, it is a flexible, targeted way to help learners develop the competencies they need.

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 (Ref: OECD Embedding Values in Curriculum). Values and Skills, as learning outcomes, are recognised and validated at a granular level through Values-based Credentials.
- Improve Competence
In facilitating the accomplishment of the learner’s aspirations, Values-based Credentials can be stacked and combined with other credentials to form a larger or higher-level credential, which communicates a more complete and detailed profile of a learner’s experiences and competencies.
is awarded to learners when
i) they receive a certain amount of backings from their peers during group learning activities, or
ii) they consistently demonstrate excellent mastery of the Values and Skills and receive recommendations from the educators.
- Encourage Relatedness
Learning does not work in isolation, but in a diverse community of people, places, and ideas. Values-based Credentials are earned through ongoing practice of the Values and Skills and interactions with members of the community, which can be a classroom of students or a business unit in a company.
