Are you looking to upskill in your current role or change careers? Maybe you want to learn more about financial literacy or agriculture or improve your public speaking skills?

The MicroCred Seeker website allows you to compare more than 450 microcredential courses and understand how they can be stacked and used for credit towards a higher-level qualification.

A microcredential is a short course in a specific area of study with a focus on upskilling or reskilling.

Microcredentials are a great way to fit your learning around your life, and help you quickly acquire job-ready skills without the need for a longer time commitment.

MicroCred Seeker is a joint initiative between the Department of Education and the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).

“With the benefits of microcredentials becoming increasingly apparent to learners, industry and the education sector, and the demand for these courses continuing to grow, it’s more important than ever to give people access to curated resources that will help them find a quality credential that meets their needs”, said David Christie, Managing Director, UAC.
