Have you claimed your digital badge?
12 January 2021
The NCCE have launched an exciting new initiative to formally recognise your contribution to computing education in England.
Awarded digitally, our portfolio of badges have been designed to enable you to build your professional profile and celebrate your achievements with your own network.
They are awarded to participants who have attended any of our face-to-face or remote courses, as part of our primary certificate or the Computer Science Accelerator programme. To date, we have issued to participants who completed courses up to the start of December.
What are the benefits?
- formal recognition of your accreditation
- share and verify your achievements
- build a profile of your skills and knowledge
- display your certificate on your social media profiles, including Twitter and LinkedIn
How do I claim my digital badge?
NCCE digital badges are awarded through a system called Acclaim. Follow these steps to accept your digital certificate:
