This report was written by Emeritus Professor, Beverley Oliver, our former Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education to address the ever-growing interest in micro-credentials.

In the digital economy where ongoing upskilling is required for the future of work, micro-credentials and other forms of non-formal learning are rapidly emerging and making the landscape ever more complex, for learners, employers and providers.

Given such contexts, “this report offers some recommended immediate next steps, making micro-credentials work—or work better—to build trust by adopting clear definitions, and standards-based practices; add value, proving their benefits to learners and employers, particularly their employability value; and achieve sustainability, for those new modes yet to show return on investment for providers.”
