Innovation Sprint

Showcasing Skills for the Workplace: Edalex’s Credentialate Platform for Learner Employability

This Sprint aims to address the increasing need for education institutions to provide appropriate tools and resources for learners to bridge the learner-to-earner gap and meet the needs of industry for job-ready graduates. 

Edalex will investigate the efficacy of personalised learner Evidence Records produced by the Credentialate platform from Edalex. The ultimate aim is to improve employability outcomes for learners while helping address a talent shortage for employers. 

The solution will be trialled at Melbourne School for Professional and Continuing Education (MSPACE) at the University of Melbourne in Victoria, and the Institute of Applied Creativity for Transformation (IACT) University of Dayton. Both will be supported with 21st century skills resources from the Education Design Lab in the United States.

The project will address the increasing need for education institutions to provide appropriate tools and resources for learners to bridge the learner-to-earner gap and meet the needs of industry for job-ready graduates. We’re incredibly grateful to Global Victoria and EduGrowth for providing funding, research support and the vehicle for this research initiative.

We’re excited to investigate the efficacy of personalised learner Evidence Records produced by our Credentialate platform and how it can improve employability outcomes for learners through our partners, while helping address a talent shortage for employers.
