British Center Group in Morocco certifies its diplomas in blockchain

British Center Group and SmartDegrees have signed a collaboration agreement to issue diplomas on blockchain. British Center Group provides English teaching in Morocco, democratizing its learning and contributing to the socio-economic development of the country. SmartDegrees designs, develops and operates solutions using blockchain technology, through which it certifies diplomas issued by British Center Group.

This agreement allows students to benefit from the advantages of an innovative platform that prevents all forms of counterfeiting. Users will be able to manage the authenticity of their degrees from their mobile phones, through a free application that will allow them to share the diploma data with labor platforms, recruitment companies and third parties, guaranteeing the inviolability and authenticity of the diploma, since it is registered on blockchain.

Advantages of diploma certification: agility, convenience and security

It facilitates the enhancement of the degree, since it allows it to be shared quickly and conveniently with other parties. The user is the sovereign owner of his data and decides where, how and when to display and use it. The application and blockchain support technology guarantee its authenticity, inviolability and prevent any type of fraud.

With this certification, British Center Group is the first SmartDegrees certified English language center in Morocco and joins the community of schools and universities in Morocco, whose diplomas are registered, according to the European Commission’s Verifiable Credentials standard, in a mature and scalable blockchain platform, using smart contracts and Quorum, based on Ethereum.

This certification makes it easier for students to gain value in the labor market and prevents any falsification, thanks to blockchain technology.
