Microcredentials - Are they here to stay?
Cedefop - 09/06/2022
Organised in cooperation with the rotating EU Presidency, these seminars build on Cedefop’s research and analyses to address issues relevant to current European debates on vocational education and training (VET) and employment.
The 12th Brussels seminar will present Cedefop’s research activities related to the theme of microcredentials and their role in supporting labour-market-related and employment-relevant education, training, and learning, including vocational education and training.
Drawing on Cedefop research, participants will learn more about microcredentials and discuss:
- the characteristics and the potential roles microcredentials may play in supporting labour-market-related and employment-relevant education, training, and learning, including vocational education and training;
- the methodology and interim findings of Cedefop’s study on microcredentials;
- their broad uptake and function as they are increasingly regarded as independent building blocks in national and international skills strategies responding to several drivers (fast-changing labour market demands, digitalisation, ageing populations, re-skilling and upskilling needs, etc).
