Badge Nation is a powerful collective of employers, schools, colleges, training providers, and informal educators. We are committed to recognising what individuals accomplish outside of formal accredited qualifications, using digital badges to motivate learning and ambition. This webinar is part of our 'Why Badge?' series.

Schools are amazing multi- faceted organisations. Too often, the performance of a school is boiled down to the results it produces in final exams, but what about all those amazing extra-curricular activities that don’t have an exam or a qualification? What about all those skills that young people develop in band, on the games field, looking after the school’s animals or on residential trips? Digital badges mean that you need never print another certificate for extra-curricular activity again (although they can be printed as certificates too!).

And what about recognising experiences and skills developed as part of a school’s careers programme? This webinar will explore how digital badges can positively support careers education and help evidence progress against the Gatsby Benchmarks and is particularly aimed at those leading, coordinating and supporting careers education in secondary schools.

Led by Real Ideas and Future Creators, all badges issued by Badge Nation are written using the Cities of Learning badge standard which is endorsed by City and Guilds and the RSA.
