Showcase your skills and achievements more effectively online through our digital badging service.
Our digital badge or credentials are issued through Acclaim by Credly to leaders who have completed their qualifications and units, allowing them to share their successes and achievements online.
Display and share your digital badges across social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, embed onto your own website or blog and share with friends and colleagues via email.
Each digital badge you’ve earned shows the skills or qualifications you’ve been accredited for and is fully verified by ILM. Digital credentials show additional information about your training and the standards that person has met, accessed at the click of a button.

What are digital credentials?
Digital credentials, also known as “digital badges or open badges” are an easy way to help you communicate a skill or achievement online in a secure way. Unlike a paper certificate, digital credentials are easily shareable, verifiable and trackable all in one click.
They contain comprehensive data including who has earned the badge, its criteria, learning evidence and who has endorsed it. All this information is packaged within a tiny badge image file that can be displayed via online CVs and social networking sites.

How do they work?
Once you’ve been awarded and accepted a digital credential, you can embed the image online wherever you like – on your digital CV, on social networks like LinkedIn or Twitter, or on your own website or blog. People viewing these sites can click onto the credential and it will take them through to the Acclaim by Credly site, where they can see all the information on that skill or achievement.
How do I know if I’m eligible for a digital credential?
We’ll send you an email via Acclaim by Credly to let you know you’ve been awarded a digital credential. You simply need to set up an account and accept your badge – then you’re ready to go!
