Microcredentials at Marshall
What are microcredentials?

Microcredentials offer a targeted and focused approach to learning specific skills. They are designed to provide practical, in-demand skills that can be applied immediately in the workplace or specific professional contexts. This makes them highly relevant and valuable in today’s rapidly evolving job market, where employers often seek candidates with specific skills.

Microcredentials are typically shorter in duration compared to traditional degrees or certifications. They are designed to be flexible, allowing learners to acquire new skills at their own pace and fit their learning around their existing commitments, such as work or personal responsibilities. This flexibility makes microcredentials accessible to a wide range of learners, including working professionals and lifelong learners.

Completing the Innovation Explorer microcredential was such a positive experience! The trainers were knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions I had. It has helped me think more creatively, and I am excited to put the information to work in my own department.
