While most Higher Education practitioners are familiar with the Diploma Supplement that was designed as an aid to support the recognition of degree-level qualifications, until recently nothing similar existed for sub-degree qualifications, especially ones of those in the region of 5 ECTS. MicroHE has set out to fill this gap and produced a so-called Credit / Module Supplement, but, more importantly, also published a Users’ Guide to provide guidance to HE Institutions on how to use the credit/module supplement in combination with other European and national recognition and portability instruments to facilitate:
- the award of micro-credentials,
- academic recognition & portability of micro-credentials,
- recognition of micro-credentials by employers and
- accreditation of micro-credentials.
