Micro-credential Providers

(service still unavailable) 


ECTE accreditation services of micro-credential providers are planned according to the following timeline:

  • 9 March, 2023 – the ECTE General Assembly approved the strategic plan to launch micro-credentials (see ECTE Strategic Plan 2022-2027).
  • 11 July, 2023 – the ECTE was registered on the EQAR.
  • September, 2023 – the ECTE presents a substantive change application to the EQAR Register Committee to include the accreditation micro-credential providers as one of its ESG regulated activities.  If successful, this will allow for listing on the DEQAR.
  • Winter, 2023 – pending a positive outcome from the EQAR, applications for accreditation of Micro-Credential Providers (MCP) will open.
  • 8-10 March, 2024 – a consultation is planned in Albania to equip all MCP accreditation applicants. See details and registration form here.

Guidelines, forms and directory

Once MCP accreditation is launched, this page will be the ‘home’ of the activity, featuring, for example, guidelines, application forms and links to the MCP Directory.

It should be noted that accreditation as a micro-credential provider (MCP) is a distinct ECTE activity that should not be confused with ECTE institutional and programme accreditation (see ECTE accreditation).
