Learning: infrastructure and functions
• Core components of EDCs
• Authentication and verification checks
TALKING POINTS
• A credential, in its most essential form, is a
documented statement containing claims
made about a person
• A European Digital Credential for Learning is
a claim related to the learning achievement of a
person
• A digital signature (e-Seal) guarantees the
origin and integrity of the document

SYNERGIES WITH OTHER EU INITIATIVES AND SERVICES
DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
Create a Framework
No changes to existing
(soft or hard) legislation
Design for
interoperability
Member States as
primary stakeholders
(institutions, learners and
employers as secondary
stakeholders)
Valid across the EU 40 year lifetime
Diploma mill proof
Works with existing
systems in Public
Service
Privacy protecting but
not self-sovereign
WHY DOES THE EC NEED A DIGITAL CREDENTIAL INITIATIVE?
OBJECTIVES
• Empower citizens to own their
credentials
• Reduce market fragmentation
• Create an EU Skills Data Space
• Make digital credentials multilingual
by default
• Remove barriers to recognition
• Provide accreditation & transparency
tools
BENEFITS
• Captures formal, non-formal &
informal learning
• Addresses all levels of education
• Applicable to the whole course
lifecycle
• Interoperable
• Aligned with European recognition
instruments
• Free & open source
WHY USE EUROPEAN DIGITAL CREDENTIALS FOR LEARNING?
8
Citizens
Beneficiaries
Education and
Training Providers
Employers
• can build an online portfolio to track their learning
• can easily utilise their credentials to get a job or apply for further training
all across Europe
• can present and have their credentials verified at any point in their
career
• can build EU standard compliant credentials
• can reduce their costs of issuing credentials after an initial investment
into transforming from paper to digital
• can better understand credentials from other Member States as EDC
utilises standards, and content can be navigated in 29 languages
• can reduce the time and cost of processing job applications
• can better understand the credentials of candidates outside of their
country as EDC utilises standards, and can be viewed in 29 languages
• can immediately see on the instant, automatic authentication and
verification check list if a credential has expired or was tampered with
IMPLEMENTATION OPPORTUNITIES AND ADVANTAGES
Interoperability
Use Data Model
Use Service
to issue Credentials
Use Code
to develop own applications
Europass (available in 29 languages)
Access to 4 million wallets
Access to Qualification and
Awarding bodies’ data
