A micro-credential certifies achievement of a coherent set of skills and knowledge and is specified by a statement of purpose, learning outcomes and strong evidence of need by industry, employers, iwi and the community.
They are smaller than a qualification and focus on skill development opportunities not currently catered for in the tertiary education system.

Micro-credentials can only be developed by NZQA, workforce development councils or registered education providers (for example Te Pūkenga, wānanga and schools).
Delivery of a micro-credential can only be by (or in partnership with) an NZQA-registered education or training provider. Workforce development councils do not deliver micro-credentials.
Providers developing micro-credentials in one of our sectors are required to seek support from us before submitting their application to NZQA. Click here to register for a new micro-credential.
