What Are Micro Credentials?
Micro credentials are a formal qualification that enables learners to access specific knowledge and skills quickly and cheaply.
Micro credentials are aimed at people who want to:
• Upskill or learn a specific skill
• Develop specialised skills that employers are looking for
• Get credit for skills they have already developed on the job
This new micro credential – Follow good practices in Animal Welfare to complete Ante-mortem examinations (Pet food) was developed in to support and meet the needs of the NZ Petfood Industry and its primary processors

• Recognising small discrete pieces of learning
• Encouraging portfolio-based approaches to education and training
• Credentialing existing knowledge and skills
