The micro-credential framework designed to meet the needs of the education sector, industry, and most importantly its lifelong learners
In recent years, there have been a growing emphasis on lifelong learning as the new norm for the way we live, work and learn in a rapidly unfolding era of change. The events of the last 3 years have reinforced the importance of continuing to invest in oneself.
The OpenCreds framework outlines how education providers can provide a market-leading lifelong learning and micro-credentialing experience that prepares learners for the future of work.
Aligned to a formal qualification level to provide learners and employers with a clear understanding of their level of achievement; and/or successful completion leads to an offer of admission to a formal qualification.
Successful completion earns credit for learning in a formal qualification, or component part of the body of a course that is part of a qualification.
Recognised by an industry association or accrediting body as meeting the needs towards maintenance of continuing professional development requirements.
