A labour market megatrend

The conference ‘Microcredentials – a labour market megatrend’ presented the findings of Cedefop´s project Microcredentials for labour market education and training

The event was an opportunity for policy-makers, social partners, stakeholders, experts and researchers from education and training, industry and beyond, to be informed on the emerging role of microcredentials in supporting labour-market-related and employment-relevant education, training and learning.

The conference offered participants insights into the perceived added value of microcredentials for end-users, as well as created a space for reflection and discussion of microcredentials’ broader uptake and function. Building on research carried out by Cedefop in recent years, the conference complemented the ongoing political discussion on tools and initiatives supporting people in their lifelong learning pathways as described in the July 2020 Skills Agenda, the Council Recommendation on vocational education and training (VET) and the 2020 Osnabrück Declaration as well as the European Union Council Recommendation on a European Approach to Microcredentials.
