Have micro-credentials helped you get ahead?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Gone are the days of getting one qualification out of school to see you through your working life. Now, upskilling, online courses and on-the-job training are all part of making your way up the career ladder. 

We want to talk to people who have completed micro-credentials, bitesize qualifications for specific skills. 

Perhaps you've pieced together a full qualification by doing online courses, or maybe you've taken a workshop rather than investing in a six-month course. We'd love to hear from you - email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz
