How to help your staff with SSSC Open Badges

SSSC Open Badges have been very popular over the last few months with lots of social service workers visiting the website for the first time. We’ve produced guidance for managers to help workers get the most from their learning activity.

The guidance, 10 top tips, include:

  1. Complete these two badges first
  2. Familiarise yourself with the badges
  3. Allow them enough time
  4. Facilitate discussion activities
  5. Check their evidence before it is submitted
  6. Endorse their badges
  7. Encourage informal coaching
  8. Celebrate success
  9. Ask new staff about Open Badges
  10. Understand the limitations of badges
