How do Talent’s Microcredentials differ?

INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT

TALENT's microcredentials are designed in collaboration with leading technology partners and employers to provide experiential skills development opportunities that focus on both technical and human skills that are in high demand.

SYNCHRONOUS LEARNING

In addition to skills development at their own pace with self-directed courses, TALENT customers can take advantage of live webinars and masterclasses to complement their learning experience.

ARTIFACT CREATION

Central to the TALENT approach is providing customers the ability to articulate, or showcase, their skills. By creating artifacts that meet industry requirements, learners can more effectively signal their job readiness to employers.

CUSTOMIZED DELIVERY

Instead of bundling courses as part of a larger certificate, TALENT allows customers to focus only on the specific courses they need. It’s a value-minded approach that allows customers to tailor their experience.

CERTIFICATION ALIGNMENT

Wherever possible, TALENT’s skills and courses are purpose-built to align with industry certifications, preparing customers for the next step in their development process.

DIGITAL BADGING

Upon successful completion of a TALENT microcredential, customers are awarded a digital badge that can be added to any digital portfolio or platform to articulate the skills acquired.
