The building of skills has become a key component of industrial policy by governments globally and is widely recognised as an essential component of a firms' ability to absorb and use ideas and technologies from elsewhere.
Moreover, skills are a major driving force of growth through their specific effect on labour productivity. They are essential for new entrants to the labour market, the ability to access good-quality jobs and embark in successful careers.
They are also crucial for adults to keep abreast of technological developments and maintain their employability in a rapidly changing and inter-dependent world.

- the emergence of the micro-credential; and
- QUT's response to address the needs of employers, individual learners and the university through its micro-credentialing approach.
