Recognising your learning achievements

Successfully completing a Tuihono UC | UC Online course deserves recognition! Learn more about digital badges and other ways your achievement will be recognised.

Tuihono UC Digital Badge

Digital Badges

Digital badges are a digital way to recognise the skills and achievements you have learnt through a specific Tuihino UC | UC Online course.

They are images you can share on your LinkedIn profile, personal website, blog or online CV that are linked to information about the credential, course and skills you have acquired. This shows your employer (or future employer!) your skills and strengths in this area, and celebrates your mahi. You can see an example of what a digital badge looks like here.

Academic Credit (Points)

You can get academic points or credits for some courses, and you may be able to put the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points for our course towards your professional requirements from your professional membership association. Continuous Professional Development (CPD) requirements vary by profession and membership association. It is advisable to check your professional membership association or regulatory body guidelines to determine if the activity qualifies for CPD credit.
