Who are micro-credentials for?

Micro-credentials are designed for all; professionals who want to continue their education, those wishing to explore emerging trends and develop skills for the evolving world of work and individuals keen to future proof their skillset through lifelong learning.

These micro-credentials will appeal to a wide range of learners including existing professionals, graduates wishing to upskill, entrepreneurs seeking to diversify or lifelong learners seeking to return to work and reskill. Continuing education is key to meeting economic and societal challenges. Micro-credentials are well placed to strengthen employability as short accredited learning experiences that are directly linked to real-world practice and industry needs.

The short micro-credentials are ideal for time-poor professionals wishing to keep up to date with sector developments, improve promotional opportunities and to support career transition goals. The added bonus of accreditation and the potential to combine/stack micro-credentials towards an award in the future make micro-credentials an attractive learning proposition. Coupled with the robust quality assurance learners will expect from Trinity’s world-class academic standards, Trinity micro-credentials present an excellent opportunity for driven and dynamic learners.
