Micro-Credential Course

Rapid and discontinuous changes characterise the twenty-first century. Adults, workers, and graduates must be agile enough to reskill and upskill in order to stay on, if not ahead of the curve, in such a dynamic environment. In this ever-demanding society, Micro-Credential Course is a popular solution to improve one’s skills.

Micro-credential is a certification of assessed learning from a single or a series of courses designed to educate learners with information, skills, values, and competences in a specific field of study or activity.
