The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) has developed a system to introduce micro-credentials in New Zealand based on feedback from multiple submissions and strong support. Submitters said micro-credentials could add substantial value to the New Zealand education and training system in a range of ways. This includes:
recognising small discrete pieces of learning
encouraging portfolio-based approaches to education and training
