Feedback sought on the Micro-credentials consultation paper

To support the Development of the COAG VET Reform Roadmap for a responsive, dynamic and trusted VET sector, Skills Ministers agreed to immediately fast track four pieces of foundational work. One of those is on the use of micro-credentials in the national VET system, to better respond to student and job-need while preserving the importance of nationally-recognised full qualifications.

This work fits under the COAG VET Reform Roadmap and, when completed, will deliver an agreed definition of micro-credentials in the VET sector and an operational framework for how micro-credentials function in the national VET system. This will complement work being undertaken by the Australian Qualifications Framework following the Expert Review and in the higher education sector.

The Micro-credentials consultation paper and details of how to provide input is available on the VET Reform Roadmap page.
