CEDEFOP Conference on Micro-credentials

25-26 Nov 2021, invitation only

Interesting reading: interim findings of Cedefop’s project on Microcredentials for labour market education and training

Preliminary findings

  • the term micro-credentials is not commonly used;
  • most countries already have certified short courses or modules that fit the European Commission’s definition of micro-credentials;
  • even though most micro-credentials operating in the labour market are not part of formal qualification systems, there is a lot of sectoral and company-level activity;
  • the main purposes of micro-credentials are employability, upskilling and reskilling, lifelong learning, adult education and inclusiveness;
