The Benefits of Digital Credentials – supporting student wellbeing & enhancing student employability
As inflation rates rise, and students are faced with high costs of rent and utilities, the need for universities to provide financial support becomes more acute. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62972580
While the UK government is being urged to introduce more measures providing direct support for students through the cost-of-living crisis, many universities are dealing with students requesting financial and pastoral assistance.
University budgets are seldom keeping pace with inflation either so realistically, assistance must come through delivering more for less, reducing the costs of being a student and improving the process of graduating and moving into the world of employment.
In this climate, anything that supports students in finding part time work during their study years is useful, in terms of bolstering living allowances, reducing stress and avoiding mental health issues.
One effective approach is to provide every student, on enrolment, with a digital, pre-verified record of their academic achievements. Accurate and verified documentation in emailable form will help students seeking part time work, internships or work placements.
As students enter their final year, many will already be applying for roles to kick off their careers, and pre-verified digital records of achievements enable applications to be fast and fully submitted within minutes. A verified digital record held within the cloud, also allows students to promote themselves effectively by sharing their achievements with prospective employers through professional social media such as LinkedIn.
The provision of pre-verified digital credentials also improves a university’s graduate employability rates, benefitting both parties.
