About Micro-Credentials

The European Approach to Micro-Credentials (2021) defines them as follows:

A micro-credential is the record of the learning outcomes that a learner has acquired following a small volume of learning. These learning outcomes have been assessed against transparent and clearly defined standards.
Courses leading to micro-credentials are designed to provide the learner with specific knowledge, skills and competences that respond to societal, personal, cultural or labour market needs.
Micro-credentials are owned by the learner, can be shared and are portable. They may be standalone or combined into larger credentials. They are underpinned by quality assurance following agreed standards in the relevant sector or area of activity.

Micro-Credential Platforms

Micro-Credentials can be obtained in virtual learning environments. Below, a selection of micro-crecentials platforms are presented and linked.
