About our EdTech Badges
Digital badges are awarded to recognise progress in your EdTech professional development, linked to the three stages of the Digital Teaching Professional Framework (DTPF): Exploring, Adopting, Leading.
You can gain digital badges at three levels:
- 1 Star - explore and complete a cluster of modules (available for Exploring, Adopting, Leading stages)
- 2 Stars - submit a personal reflection on a module which will be peer-reviewed (available for Exploring, Adopting, Leading)
- 3 Stars - submit a resource + a personal reflection which will both be peer-reviewed (for Adopting & Leading stages only)
The 1 Star badges are available for all categories of modules on the EnhanceDTP. The 2 Star and 3 Star badges are currently only available for some categories, but this is expanding:
*New* The 2 and 3 Star badges are now available for the Connected and Effective and The Digital Teacher categories of modules, as well as the Accessibility, and the Dealing with Difference and Diversity categories.
If you have a 1 star badge for any of these four categories of modules, you are ready to start your submission for a 2 star badge:

Once you have a 2 star badge, if you create and submit a resource with a reflection on its use, you can gain your 3 star badge.
