Forma.Temp is the Fund for training and income support for temporary workers, established as a voluntary non-profit association. The fund’s members include the two representative associations of Employment Agencies – ApL (Assolavoro and Assosomm), the trade unions of temporary workers (FelSA-CISL, NIDIL-CGIL, UILTemp), and the three trade union confederations (CGIL, CISL, and UIL).

The Project

Pomiager has developed a system for certifying skills in funded training programs through the use of blockchain technologies and NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), incorporating digital badges that are compliant with the Open Badges standard. This innovative approach ensures the secure and verifiable accreditation of educational achievements and competencies acquired during training, providing a tamper-proof and transparent record of each participant’s learning milestones. The integration of Open Badges standard allows for the creation of digital badges that are interoperable across various platforms and systems, enhancing their utility and recognition across educational and professional landscapes.

The use of NFTs to represent unique, digital certificates of achievement adds a layer of value and security. Each NFT-based badge is unique to the individual, impossible to duplicate or falsify, and easily verifiable. This method streamlines the certification process and offers a novel way to recognize and transfer the value of skills and knowledge in the digital age, addressing challenges such as fraud risk, authenticity verification, and the cumbersome sharing of credentials.

By making certifications secure, verifiable, and portable, Pomiager’s solution enhances trust in the qualifications earned through funded training programs. It facilitates lifelong learning and career development, allowing individuals to accumulate and present a digital portfolio of verifiable skills and achievements over time. Employers benefit from being able to identify qualified candidates with verified skills more efficiently.

Incorporating the Open Badges standard, Pomiager’s development significantly advances the modernization of skill certification, offering a robust, efficient, and innovative solution that meets the demands of a rapidly evolving job market and digital economy.

Forma.Temp issues about 700,000 digital badges each year.
