European council approves measures to standardise micro-credentials

A European Commission recommendation adopted by the Council of the European Union (EU) on 16 June provides new building blocks to help make micro-credentials work across institutions, businesses, sectors, and borders.

Micro-credentials certify the learning outcomes of short-term learning experiences, for example, a short course or training. They offer a flexible, targeted way to help people develop the knowledge, skills, and competencies they need for their personal and professional development.
They form part of a culture of lifelong learning, which helps people thrive in society, the labour market, and their personal lives.

The Recommendation also outlines key areas for action on micro-credentials in education and training and in labour markets policies. This will enable people to learn new or additional skills in a tailored way, inclusive for all.

Creating a European approach to micro-credentials is a key flagship to achieving a European Education Area (EEA) by 2025.
