Microcredentials, Microlearning and Canada's Skill Agenda
75% of Canadian employers say they can’t find employees with the skills they need for available jobs. Despite high levels of youth employment, there are still some 50,000+ jobs each month that remained unfilled.

Microlearning, competency-based learning and microcredentials could be effective responses to this challenge.

This webinar will explore the potential of micro-learning and microcredentials linked to competencies as a way forward.

• What the skills challenge really is, and the six skills gaps we need to close

• Where microcredentials could fit into a skills development system
