In the last few years, the term “micro-credential” has been gradually well-known by the public, especially the pandemic further stimulates strong interest toward it. Micro-credentials usually provide training in a shorter or more flexible basis than traditional degree or certificates, and focus on specific skills training. Therefore, micro-credential will play an important role in workers training.

Currently, many countries and organizations have strategically begun to evaluate the contribution of micro-credentials to education, economy and society, and launched several pilot projects or corresponding policies, such as the EU, Australia, New Zealand, China, Ireland, Malaysia, Canada, the United States and the Netherlands, etc. All these development in the field of micro-credentials have demonstrated an increasingly global development trend. Micro-credentials enable learners to participate in customized short-termed or accredited studying, which reflects their lifelong learning achievements and shows the feature of flexibility, convenience and lower price. In continuing education, professional education and workforce education, micro-credentials have become increasingly popular.

Why do we need micro-credentials? Industry 4.0 and “disruptive forces like globalization, aging population, climate change and development of technology (including the use of AI)” have changed the nature of working, which leads to the skills shortage, and makes it important to upgrade skills, re-skill and develop new digital talents. So are the high tuition fees for traditional degrees, lack of alignment with employment needs and the ability to adjust for the changing circumstances. As a result, there is a growing need for learning pathways and other types of education.

Since the pandemic outbreak, national governments plan to create new jobs and address specific skill shortages for new growth area, so that there has been a surge interest in micro-credentials. The global micro-credentials related projects are gaining at a robust rate, therefore, exploring the potential of micro-credentials to enhance skills, respond to the changing nature of work and provide new lifelong learning pathways will prepare learners to meet the demands of current changing digital society.

There is no doubt that the popularity of micro-credentials stems from the need for better job prospects and learning opportunities. With the help of the micro-certificate platform, people can acquire skills that are suitable for work needs or career development, and learn whenever and wherever they want. The new ear has given rise to new patterns of employment, and correspondingly eliminated traditional ones. Therefore it is urgent to help people upgrade their professional skills. With the support of micro-certificate project, people receive better education at a lower cost, so the skill gap between groups is gradually narrowing down and the human resources as well as the professional skills are improved eventually.
