We want to recognise the value of using Creating Conversations for anyone who uses our toolkit and is looking to validate their achievements, share the impact the kit has had in their conversations and to ensure that it contributes to professional development and key competencies.
We have worked with the SSSC (Scottish Social Services Council to launch our first Open Badges for anyone using the kits to earn through submitting evidence to our team. We are really enthused and encouraged by the stories, images and evidence we have already received and we would love to award you with a badge for your own benefit.
The Bronze Open Badge is ideal to a someone using our social activity kits for the very first time. It will support you to get the most out of the kit if you are trying out our kits to facilitate or support a conversation session and should help with your first steps towards confident social communication.
What is an Open Badge?
Open Badges are a straightforward way to collect, manage and share evidence of learning in today’s digital world. You can collect them to evidence your learning and share them in places that matter to you, including offline as printable certificates. When you show your badge to someone, they will be able to see criteria against which the badge was issued and any evidence that you provided to prove you met that criteria.
The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) and dozens of other social service organisations issue Open Badges to recognise continuous and informal learning that would otherwise go unrecorded.
The Silver Open Badge is ideal to a someone using our social activity kits as part of a full or ongoing programme.. It will support you to get the most out of the kit if you are leading a facilitated conversation session and developing a full project to completion.
