CIVIS offers students a vast range of educational and extra-curricular opportunities, through which you can develop skills and knowledge of real relevance to your future career. The help students benefit from this CV boost as easily as possible, we are creating the CIVIS Passport. This digital certification tool will give students a comprehensive visual record of their CIVIS achievements to accredit their success.
The CIVIS Passport will be a valuable addition to the students' CV. Our innovative digital tool, powered by blockchain, lets you share your verified activity record through your online profiles or directly with future employers. With authenticity guaranteed by the CIVIS Alliance, the CIVIS Passport will certify students’ participation in the various educational and co-educational activities which we offer. For each CIVIS activity successfully completed, students will receive a digital OpenBadge which sets out the:
- Learning outcomes
- Competences and skills acquired
- The method of assessment (for curricular activities)
CIVIS Passport – our innovative tool for digital qualifications
CIVIS, a European CIVIC University, is one of the first alliances to adopt blockchain certification for all curricular and extra-curricular activities. The CIVIS passport will centralise and secure the recognition of students’ participation in CIVIS activities. Through the use of BCDiploma, CIVIS is dematerialising the certification process while still offering robust and recognised qualifications using Openbadges.
These blockchain-certified digital certificates will be complementary to the paper documents delivered after participation in a CIVIS activity. They will be a means to prove the authenticity of education and training throughout the participants’ professional career.
For students, the CIVIS Passport will provide proof of their active engagement and experience. For future recruiters and employers, as well as other educational institutions, it will serve as a mark of confidence and quality for those applicants possessing it. With just one click, future employers or education institutions can access the Openbadge, which includes a range of elements that prove its authenticity.
How can I access and share my CIVIS Passport?
The CIVIS Passport system is currently in the final stages of testing. Any students who have undertaken a CIVIS activity will soon receive instructions about how they can access the CIVIS Passport and share their verified badges in job/study applications or on their online profiles. All students who complete a CIVIS activity will automatically receive the CIVIS Passport, and you do not need to apply for it separately.
What are the benefits of digital credentials for students?
Digital credentials allow students to receive permanent, authenticated proof of their diploma or acquired skill. Based on blockchain technology, digital credentials are as trustworthy as paper certificates. They are fully secure, forgery-proof, and verifiable. Meanwhile, the digital format means they can be stored more easily than a paper document, cannot be lost or damaged, and can be shared with multiple recruiters or organisations at the same time.
What are the benefits of blockchain-powered digital credentials?
The digital credentials delivered on the blockchain via BCdiploma are 100% secure, tamper-proof, verifiable, and permanent. Blockchain is the decentralised database technology and by definition a forgery-proof digital record. Therefore, any data entered on the blockchain cannot be altered or modified, allowing universities to offer their students digital credentials which are stored permanently and securely.
Any recruiters or organisations viewing the certificate can be sure of its validity because falsification of blockchain information is impossible. Digital credentials built on the blockchain can therefore help prevent the circulation of fraudulent CVs or diplomas, which has become a major problem for both recruiters and schools. The CIVIS Passport will therefore be a guarantee of trust and security that allows learners to prove the authenticity of their education and training throughout their professional lives.
