SkillSafari works to create successful careers through recognition and validation of skills with digital micro credentials. Our innovative solution is based on years of experience working with skills development internationally and our dedication to create paths to good careers.

In our “Skills to Badges” approach  we validate skills relevant to employers. Individual skills are presented as digital badges with skills demonstration criteria and issued to individuals meeting the set standard. Our badges are based on international top expertise like the UNESCO framework for teacher ICT skills, Finnish education system, high level research and practical needs of employees.
