Validate skills and share achievements anywhere, anytime
Digital credentials are helping thousands of brands build a culture of recognition.
Digital credentials are data-rich representations of knowledge, skills, or behaviours developed through the learning programme - fully verified by ILM. They provide portable and verifiable information about the skills and achievements at the click of a button.
Unlock opportunities by enabling your learners or employees to share their credentials and highlight the skills and qualifications they’ve achieved.
Our digital credentials powered by Credly, the world's most connected credentialing network, are issued to all graduates as part of our end-to-end package for all ILM qualifications, apprenticeships, and recognition services.
You can also update Walled Garden with your learners' email addresses in bulk. Please read our user guide for the step-by-step process. Alternatively, you can contact our team for more information at DCServiceTeam@cityandguilds.com.
Recognising what matters
In 2020 the world changed, and we recognised how much we needed each other. Across City & Guilds, we shared our stories about wellbeing, equality, communities and everyday leadership. We came together to recognise what matters and believe together we can make a difference.
A digital credential contains comprehensive data including who has earned the credential, learning evidence and who has issued it. All this information is packed into a credential image file that can be displayed via online CVs and social networking sites.
The following are also included in a digital credential:
- details about the organisation issuing the credential
- the qualification or programme achieved to earn the credential
- the criteria that the credential has been assessed against
- when the credential was issued and expiry date if applicable.
How do digital credentials work?
Once an individual has been awarded and accepted a digital credential, they can embed the image online wherever they like – on their digital CV, on social networks like LinkedIn or Twitter, or on their own website or blog. Peers and potential emloyers viewing these sites can click onto the credential and it will take them through to the Credly site, where they can see all the information on that skill or achievement.
