What are digital badges?

Digital badges offer a visual representation of particular skills, knowledge or experiences that you’ve had or developed through engaging with Your Students' Union. They will be awarded for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Attending an event, training session or workshop
  • Holding a particular student role or position
  • Developing or enhancing your skills

Digital badges are achieved online (digitally) and can be utilised and displayed in a variety of ways, to show training, education or experiences you’ve had. The platform that we use to administer badges at the SU is called Badgr.
