Digital Badges

We use badges to recognise learning, validate skills and build capabilities.

The London CLC Digital Academy is an online learning site that provides learners with certification of their learning by awarding Open Badges once a course has been successfully completed.

What is an Open Badge?
An Open Badge is a digital award that can be collected from the London CLC Digital Academy and stored online or off-line in your personal student file. You can work towards one badge or multiple badges. You can also combine badges building a comprehensive portfolio over time to showcase all of your interests and skills.

How do I sign up?
If you want to study towards any of our Digital Champion badges please contact us on: digitalchampion@londonclc.org.uk or call 02077207514 and ask for the Digital Champion Team.
