The partnership is designed to address the needs of those applying for higher education, as well as for employment, to prove their academic and professional qualifications.
“The combination of Yoti’s strength in verifying personal ID and Qualification Check’s global coverage of academic and professional awards, makes this a natural partnership, offering a single secure platform for personal identity, higher education and career progression,” Ed Hall, CEO of Qualification Check, said.
Since 2014, Yoti has provided a reusable Digital ID that allows individuals to prove their identify without the need for showing ID documents or share an excessive amount of personal data.
“We’re thrilled to join forces with Qualification Check and help people safely share verified qualification credentials, as well as identity details, with ease, simplicity and speed,” Robin Tombs, Yoti CEO, explained.
“We’re already transforming the way people complete right to work checks, so this partnership will help us bring the power of digital identity to even more people.”
Headquartered in London, Qualification Check covers 195 countries and more than 50,000 universities and institutions via its cloud-based portal. Some 80% of verifications are fully or partially automated.
