Your new Go-To Guides to Creating Coaching & Workshops

Both guides give you practical Portrait breakdowns, activities to use, worksheets and templated session plans with tips and step-by-step videos to use across any development experience you’re running.

We’re excited for you explore the new guides and we hope they’ll make designing and delivering personal development simpler, smarter, and more impactful for your learners.


Open Badges – your shiny official qualification certificate


Your Open Badge (or badges if you’re qualified beyond Lumina Spark) helps showcase your skillset in a well presented, digitally focused and verified way.  Whether you’re newly qualified in one of our tools, or looking to highlight your existing credentials, they’re a great way to sharpen up your personal brand and show what you do.

Now a popular standard feature of many learning management systems, Open Badges (which also go by the name of ‘micro-credentials’) are visual tokens of verifiable achievements earned by recipients and easily shared online and via social media.


More than just a pretty image

A LinkedIn study found that digital credentials increase profile views by 600% !*
