This page has been developed as a resource to support the College’s larger strategy to develop, plan, and deliver Micro-credentials in a purposeful and strategic way.

What is a Micro-credential?

A Micro-credential is a flexible and granular form of post-secondary education or training related to specific skills and competencies that are developed and offered in a partnership between one or more post-secondary institutions and one or more employers, may be tailored towards a specific need or may be stacked together, with the opportunity to track towards a larger recognized credential or certificate (Ministry of Colleges and Universities & The Ministry of Labour Training and Skills Development, 2021).

  • Micro-credentials are delivered in 11 weeks or less and can range from 5 to 300 instructional hours
  • Micro-credentials require collaboration between an accredited educational institution and an employer or industry sector
  • Micro-credentials will map to the chosen external competency framework and clearly link demonstrated knowledge, skills, or attitudes required of the credentialed assessment performance
  • Upon successful completion learners earn digital badge as evidence of achievement which can be shared digitally using the eCampus Passport, LinkedIn or other social media platforms
