A micro-credential indicates demonstrated mastery of a specific competency. It has a more focused scope than a traditional degree programme. All students successfully completing Learnful Professional Diplomas earn micro-credentials after successful completion of the end of course assessment. 

A digital badge is the visual representation of a credential. Recipients can display their digital badges on CVs, social media profiles like LinkedIn, email signatures and websites.

The metadata contained in the digital badge verifies the learner's mastery. It includes data about the learner, credential, issuing organisation, date issued, criteria to earn the credential and a web address with supporting information. This information helps an employer understand the criteria met to earn the micro-credential as well as the authority of the organisation issuing it. 

Micro-credentials, along with their corresponding digital badges, make it easy for professionals to show exactly what skills and knowledge they bring to a new position or project. If a respected trade or professional association backs the micro-credential, it makes an even stronger impression.
