Feedback Needed for Development of Micro-Credentials for Signmaking

Hanga-Aro-Rau Workforce Development Council is seeking industry feedback on the development of micro-credentials for the sign-making sectors. We have understood from industry that these micro-credentials are necessary to better support this sector, by helping to address some of the key concerns the industries are facing, such as skill shortages, attraction, and retention of staff. Micro-credentials are bite-sized pieces of learning that contribute to gaining further qualifications.

For the sign-making sector, we are proposing micro-credentials that touch on all aspects of sign-making, such as design, manufacturing, application, installation, illumination, and traditional sign-making techniques.  We see these micro-credentials creating opportunities for clearer pathways into sign-making by breaking down the essential skills and knowledge into more accessible modules. The aim is to streamline the process to benefit the sector. These micro-credentials also upskill and expand the knowledge of those already in the industry who may not have had the opportunity to undergo any formal training.

Signee NZ Ltd with the support of The New Zealand Sign and Display Association has raised the need for these micro-credentials. We are now seeking further feedback and interest from industry stakeholders to ensure the micro-credentials are tailored to meet the actual needs and challenges faced by the workforce.  We welcome industry professionals to share their thoughts and express their interest in these micro-credentials, as feedback is invaluable in shaping the future of vocational education for our industries.

If no feedback is received, then no micro-credentials will be implemented and no changes for gaining further qualifications will be made.

All feedback is needed on or before 18th August, 5pm.
