Digital Badges recognise your achievements which you can share with future employers
Digital badges, also known as micro-rewards or digital accreditation, are a visual representation of an accomplishment that you can display online through LinkedIn, in a digital CV or email signature.
Badges can be achieved through a variety of ways but ultimately all recognise your participation in extra-curricular activities hosted by Your SU. Badges make you more employable and a stand-out candidate.
Achievement badges are awarded for attending or participating in an activity, be it an event, workshop, or seminar. It is a recognition of your attending and requires no formal assessment.
These recognise your development of specialist knowledge or skills through, training, a project assessment, or skills demonstration.
Pathways are a series of achievement or competency badges that lead to an overall achievement known as a Mile Stone Pathway Badge and can help you achieve a Leadership Award.
You can see the full set of badges on Badgr.
