Child development

This Open Badge is available to anybody working in social services who has used our Child Development app. To obtain the badge, you need to provide some evidence of what you have learned and how you used the app.


To earn this badge you will need to:

  • work through the Child Development app
  • tell us about how using the app helped develop your knowledge and understanding of the topic (100 words minimum)
  • tell us how you have or intend to apply this knowledge in your day to day practice (100 words minimum).

We will decline applications that do not provide enough evidence showing how you have met these criteria.


None. This badge does not require you to hold any other badges.


You will need to provide two written statements, of about 100 words, on how using the app helped develop your learning and how you have or intend to put your learning into practice. You can provide your statements on the badge application form below or provide a link to your own blog/portfolio.

If you want to use a blog or ePortfolio entry as evidence, you might find our guide to preparing and publishing your evidence useful. We will also accept short audio or video statements if you prefer these formats.

Remember, the evidence you provide will be viewable by anyone who you show your badge to. Please don’t include confidential or private information within your statements.
