The makings of a market-place in micro-credentials

The government will create an information base on short-course outcomes, duration, delivery and value as pre-reqs

The $4.3m resource is based on the creation of 344 short-courses designed for people to re-train during the COVID-19 crisis. “

Micro-credentials address the most common barriers cited by adult workers who are not intending to undertake further formal training or study: time and cost,” Education Minister Dan Tehan says.

“The micro-credential marketplace will be a platform for job-seekers to see what skills they can gain by further study to help them get a new job or to get ahead in their current job.”
