Use your Badge
Followig applying for your badge you will receive an email to notify you that you have been awarded your digital badge. We issue our badges once a year so you might have to wait a while before it comes through.
Click on the Get your Badge link in the email to view your badge and all the information linked to it. Digital badges are helpful for employers because they represent a specific set of criteria acheived and skills demonstrated.
The badges are issued through a system called the Open Badge Factory. Follow the instructions here to set up a new Open Badge Passport account to redeem your badge.
If you want to add your shiny new badge to your LinkedIn account you can follow the instructions here to do so.
Our thanks to the lovely people from CELT in NUI Galway who helped us set up the Badge System, issue the badges through Open Badge Factory and provided the instructions on collecting your badge and displaying it on LinkedIn.
