Micro-credentials are between 5 to 40 credits, consist of one or more unit standards and, just like a qualification, are nationally recognised and registered with NZQA.
Who should do a micro-credential?
Micro-credentials are a great option for existing employees who need to upskill in a certain area. They support:
- Ongoing professional development
- Retraining or training in a new skill (such as new technology)
- Progression to further education and training.
