The current process of education accreditation is carried out largely through manual means. This poses significant risk to the quality and integrity of education outcomes due to the volume of falsification of academic certificates. This research will explore the feasibility a decentralised data management tool using blockchain technology for an effective solution. The study will evaluate the unique characteristics of added security, transparency, immutability and decentralisation of the blockchain technology using a prototype. Qualitative case study methodology will be used to document the challenges in the process of accreditation and to analyse the appropriate technology framework. This objective of this research is to develop a blockchain technological solution framework to the problem of accreditation which impacts the quality of education.
