General Staff Training

Employees of all grades in higher education institutions can avail of (and, indeed, in some cases are legally obliged to) training in a variety of topics either related directly to their current role or health, safety and general awareness.

Digital badges offer some distinctive advantages in terms of capturing a record of training: they provide the individual participant with scope for building up their own profile.

They allow training completed and skills acquired to be displayed in departmental web-pages, etc; they can have a set expiry date so that any training which requires to be refreshed (eg Fire Safety) can be readily identified both by the individuals and the training provider
