“I didn’t know anything about badging. The pilot opened my eyes to the possibilities for the company I work for. We are now discussing ways of implementing it that we didn’t imagine before.”

Focusing on professional development in the humanitarian sector we have developed a digital platform where key players can meet: humanitarian workers and volunteers, learning and assessment providers, and employers.
We have recently piloted the first version of HPass with a view to improving the service before its global launch at the end of 2019.

You will be able to share your skills, learning, and experience with colleagues and employers, and earn digital badges by developing and demonstrating new skills.
Create your own Open Badges

Learn and meet the standards
You will be able to understand how your organisation performs compared to sector standards for learning and assessment and show this to others.
Develop your workforce
You will be able to use competency-based badges to track the skills that meet your needs.
HPass also provides a related opportunity for learning and assessment providers to join a global platform, sign up to sector-recognised standards and provide digital credentials using digital badges. Individuals can store their digital badges on the free platform, MyHPass and share their skills, learning and experiences.
We have developed sets of global standards which supply criteria to measure the quality of learning, in consultation with learning and assessment providers from all over the world. We have designed them for organisations, companies, departments and institutes who provide learning services to anyone involved in humanitarian action.
If you meet these standards, you are contributing to the overall commitment that people involved in humanitarian action will have access to high-quality learning programmes that will allow them to work more effectively.
