What is the Badge Zone?

The Badge Zone is our online hub to support with all things Badge Nation, whether you're considering joining and curious to learn more, or returning to write your 100th badge.

Use the Badge Zone to:

  • Learn about digital badges
  • Start writing high-quality badges
  • Access help and support

Don't worry, it's open to all!

Using the Badge Zone will not automatically sign your organisation up to a Badge Nation membership package.

Add your organisation

You'll be joining your organisation.


Please provide the details of your organisation. We need this information to enable your access to our Badge Writing Form. Creating your organisations profile does not mean you are signing up or committing to sign up to Badge Nation, is completely free of charge.

If you wish to sign up as a Badge Nation customer now or in the future, or your organisation is already a Badge Nation customer, you can find details of this within your Badge Zone account.

Your Badge Issuing Platform

Please indicate below if your organisation plans to use Credly or Navigatr.

If you intend to use a different platform, or aren’t sure at this stage, you can proceed without a selection to use our standard badge writing form in the Badge Zone.



What are Issuing Platforms?

A badge issuing platform is a website that enables you to issue digital badges to your earners. When you write a badge with us and it passes through our Quality Assurance process, we will publish it to your issuing platform of choice.

If you are unsure whether you have selected the right platform or would like to talk to us about what platform may be right for your organisation's needs, please submit a Customer Support request within the Badge Zone using the 'Help' button on the left-hand side of your screen.
