Hi Jill,


Yes of course. The SSSC issue Open Badges to recognise continuous and informal learning. You can collect, manage and share evidence of your learning in today’s digital world.


You can collect them to evidence your learning, including offline as printable certificates.


When you show your badge to someone, they will be able to see criteria against which the badge was issued and any evidence that you provided to prove you met that criteria.


They have them in a variety of subjects, see more information by clicking here.


Hope this helps.
