Micro-credentials: summary of the survey results (2024)

This infographic offers a brief overview on the findings of the ACQF-II survey on micro-credentials.




28 countries participated in the micro-credentials survey (2024). The survey underscores both the promise and the hurdles surrounding the integration of micro-credentials within African educational systems. While discussions abound and stakeholders express a growing awareness of their potential, formal definitions and policy frameworks are yet to catch up with the momentum. Overcoming challenges of recognition, standardization, and policy alignment demands collective action and a shared commitment to a common continental approach. In navigating these obstacles lies the opportunity to harness the transformative potential of micro-credentials, driving educational innovation, enhancing workforce readiness, and fostering inclusive economic growth across Africa.
