Guide to obtaining a competence badge (academic year 2023–2024)

Once you have successfully completed the 2.3 Optional pedagogical focus (see Development Programme), your teacher can award you a digital competence badge. Apply for competence badges here.

Before you can apply for a competence badge, you need to create an Open Badge Passport. You can collect all the badges you earn to the Passport. You store and publish your badges safely in the Open Badge Passport. The Passport needs to be created with the same email address which you use to apply for the badge. The system recognizes the connection between the badge earner and the passport based on the email address. Create your free account here.
