Guide for training centers

If you provide training and education for adults, badges can allow to support your learners by showing they master the key competences and that they have skills and behaviours required by companies.

This short guide explains what is an Open Badge and answers all your questions for a practical deployment in your organisation.

Guide for learners

Aside from certificates and diplomas, how can I show my key skills? How to convince employers that I have the right skills for work? Why are badges useful for my career? How and where can I get badges?

This short guide provides all information to understand what are badges and how they can be used in a learning path.

Good practices

You are a training provider,
you are a learner and you want to test
the added value of open badges.

If you live in France, Sweden, Germany, Slovenia or Spain, contact the corresponding organisation supporting the project to be involved.

The good practice report will describe use cases.


These video-tutorials will guide you for the concrete elaboration of various types
of Open Badges. How to design a badge? How to include the right meta-data? How to manage badges?
How to promote badges in your environment? How to help learners using and valorising their badges?


The partners of Open Badges for adult education created many badges. They issue these badges to their learners.

About us

The Open Badges for adult education project involves
5 organisations in Europe

The project is coordinated by the Greta du Velay.


The OpenBadges project

The objective of our project is to test and promote the use of Mozilla Open Badges among adult education organisations, educators and learners at ground level.

We will explore how we can valorise the key competences of learners as well as the behaviours and skills that are particularly demanded by employers such as the capacity to adapt, to work in group or to respect deadlines. Our work is in line with the identification, documentation and validation of non formal and informal learning as most of these skills and attitudes are developed in various contexts and do not constitute the key components of certificates or diplomas competency frameworks.


Quaterly news inform the learning community about our experimentation and results in the five countries involved.
