15 April 2020 - The award ceremony, the granting of a certificate, and now a way to display your credentials online: the digital badge.
Take pride in your parchment certificate – frame it to display – but put your digital badge on your online profile, where potential employers can see it and verify its authenticity with a click.
VETASSESS and its online learning arm, eWorks, are retraining people who have become unemployed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, as part of the Victorian Government’s Working for Victoria initiative to help workers find new jobs.
eWorks will provide online courses to enable displaced workers to immediately reskill for jobs in key sectors that are seeing a surge in demand to cope with the effects of the COVID-19 virus.
It can be tempting to post your skills assessment outcome online, but you should be careful about identity fraud.
VETASSESS is pleased to announce an agreement with UK NARIC as the chosen agency on behalf of VETASSESS to serve customers based in the United Kingdom and Europe.
Supporting a successful global recognition system
By Dr Mamta Chauhan
Academic and professional mobility is a significant driver for shaping the future success of nations. This mobility enables highly-skilled individuals to cross borders – transferring their skills, expertise and knowledge.
There is a growing consensus that nations will miss out on an enormous talent pool if they do not create opportunities to facilitate a fair and strong global system to recognise skills.
Are you a global marketing professional interested in bringing your experience and talents to Australia for better career opportunities? An Australian marketing graduate applying for jobs in the industry? Or an organisation trying to recruit and retain high-quality global marketing talent? VETASSESS has skills assessment products that will help meet your needs.
