Badge Nation

Badge Nation is a powerful collective of employers, schools, colleges, training providers and informal educators. We are committed to recognising what individuals achieve and accomplish outside of formal accredited learning. Led by Real Ideas and Future Creators, all badges issued by Badge Nation are written using the Cities of learning badging standard which is endorsed by City and Guilds and the RSA.

Barnardo’s is the oldest and largest children's charity in the UK. At Barnardo’s we believe in children and young people – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. We will ensure their needs are met and their voices are heard. Though this programme Barnardo’s aims to support learners to demonstrate transferable skills and behaviours and gain recognised, accredited badges with a view to enhancing their journeys into employment or further training.
