Microcredentials are a type of certification that recognizes a person’s knowledge, skills, and achievements in a specific area. They are short, focused learning programs that provide individuals with a digital credential that verifies their competency in a specific topic or skill set.
Unlike traditional degrees, microcredentials are generally shorter in duration and are often more targeted towards a specific skill or competency. They are designed to be flexible, affordable, and accessible, and can be earned online, through bootcamps, or through other forms of specialized training.
Microcredentials are becoming increasingly popular as a way for individuals to upskill or reskill in a specific area, and for employers to identify and verify the skills of potential hires. Some examples of microcredentials include digital badges, certificates, and other forms of certification that can be displayed on social media profiles, resumes, and other professional networking platforms.
Per a British Columbian government website focusing on education, micro-credentials recognize short-duration, competency-based learning opportunities, that align with labor market or community needs and can be assessed and recognized for employment or further learning opportunities.
Micro-credentials provide opportunities for individuals to quickly reskill or upskill and access high-demand employment. Key to micro-credential development is partnership and collaboration with employers and industry, to ensure the competencies learners gain are relevant and recognized for employment. As they are often offered at a shorter length, lower cost and with flexible delivery options, micro-credentials can increase access to post-secondary education for a range of learners who may not be able to or do not wish to enrol in longer post-secondary programs.
Micro-credentials are an additional option for learners at any stage of their education and career journey to gain competencies that meet educational and employment goals. They are intended to complement current offerings and pathways at British Columbia’s public post-secondary institutions and support increased access to post-secondary education and life-long learning.
Offering “microcredentials” that give students a way to show they have training in a particular skill makes them 75% more likely to enroll in a given academic program, per a new survey from education platform Coursera, Alex Fitzpatrick reports.
