WORKING DEFINITION
A micro-credential is a proof of the learning outcomes that
a learner has acquired following a short learning
experience. These learning outcomes have been assessed
against transparent standards.
The proof is contained in a certified document that lists the name of the holder, the
achieved learning outcomes, the assessment method, the awarding body and, where
applicable, the qualifications framework level and the credits gained. Micro-credentials
are owned by the learner, can be shared, are portable and may be combined into larger
credentials or qualifications. They are underpinned by quality assurance following agreed
standards
