eCampusOntario, partners to collaborate on ON micro-credential strategy

November 10, 2020
The Government of Ontario has released Budget 2020, which includes a $59.5M investment into a province-wide micro-credential strategy. The funds will be used over three years to create an online portal of micro-credential training opportunities, develop new programs, launch a public awareness campaign, and develop a virtual passport. eCampusOntario states that it will work with partners to “develop a virtual passport for lifelong learning” through its common framework, which guides the development of micro-credential initiatives. “Ensuring that learners are able to access skills and competencies as part of their career preparation and reskilling is essential to building social and economic resilience,” said Robert Luke, CEO of eCampusOntario. “When micro-credentials are delivered online, learners can access flexible education and training when and where they need it.” Colleges Ontario | Accesswire (eCampus Ontario) (ON)
