Micro-credentials gift for Christmas

The long awaited micro-credentials marketplace launches in December

Deep in the parliamentary weeds is a bill making micro-credential course costs FEE HELP-able. It’s all part of the plan to encourage the present pilot of m-c courses. But it will help if people have to know where to find them.

The previous government was on to that, announcing in June 2020 there would be, “a nationally consistent platform to compare course outcomes, duration, mode of delivery and credit point value. Last year the NSW Universities Admission Centre was commissioned to build a “micro-credentials marketplace” (CMM, July 15 2021 and March 23 2022).

So how’s that going? UAC’s Kim Paino says, “we are currently onboarding providers” and anticipates the site will be live in December.
