This week, St PETER’S SCHOOL in Catalunya is taking a significant step by sending out Year 11 reports to families. However, what makes this moment truly groundbreaking is that, for the first time, these reports can be validated using blockchain technology. As the first school in Catalunya to implement this system, St PETER’S SCHOOL is leading the way in revolutionizing the certification process not only within schools but also extending its potential to universities.
Teresa Ferrer, the curriculum coordinator at St PETER’S SCHOOL, explains the motivation behind this innovative approach: “We believe it is important for students to have a dedicated online platform that certifies their results, and blockchain technology seemed like the perfect solution. It ensures the authenticity of their achievements and helps prevent any form of academic plagiarism or fraud.”
Through our dedicated curriculum validator tool, any university can easily validate the authenticity of our students’ reports by visiting https://stpeters.es/curriculum-validator/. This innovative approach solidifies the trust and reliability of our students’ academic achievements, propelling them towards successful higher education opportunities. By embracing blockchain technology and fostering collaboration with CBCat, we are leading the way in Catalunya and beyond.
A partnership with CBCat
Albert d’Anta, the Director of Operations at CBCat (Blockchain Center of Catalonia), shares his perspective on the impact of blockchain technology in education: “The certification of students’ results using blockchain technology provides a higher level of transparency, security, and confidence in the accuracy of academic achievements. Moreover, eliminating the need for intermediaries and streamlining the process facilitates student mobility, credit recognition, and global collaboration in education.”
The implementation of blockchain technology in the certification of Year 11 reports marks an important milestone for St PETER’S SCHOOL. It exemplifies their commitment to embracing cutting-edge advancements in education, with both Teresa Ferrer and Albert d’Anta recognizing the transformative potential of blockchain technology in enhancing the certification process and fostering trust in academic achievements.
