Micro-credentials in New Zealand's education and training system: a consultation paper

Embedding micro-credentials into New Zealand's education and training system

There are options for the extent that micro-credentials can be embedded into the New Zealand education and training system and quality assured. For example, if feasible, should:

  • approved micro-credentials be listed on the NZQF? (this is being considered as part of the NZQF review currently underway and would require legislative change)
  • learners’ achievement of micro-credentials be recorded on the New Zealand Record of Achievement (NZRoA)? (this may require appropriate reporting mechanisms and changes to the current record)

Question

To what extent should micro-credentials be embedded into the New Zealand education and training system? Please explain the reasons for your view.
