Creating the award-winning blueprints for Cities of Learning UK with 3 cities
Cities of Learning UK is a digitally-enabled place-based approach to empowering access to city-wide learning and enrichment opportunities. Grainne Hamilton led work on the digital credential pathways concept as part of a multi-agency team that partnered with the cities of Manchester, Brighton and Plymouth to create the approach. The team led design sessions with stakeholders from across the cities to articulate what a City of Learning could be; established local priorities; defined skill needs & a universal skills spine; mapped learning provision and opportunities across each city; created the blueprints based on the concept of open badge pathways; and developed a digital platform prototype. The credential pathways work formed the basis for what has become the RSA Badge Standard.
