CAPS talks with the Toronto Star about Micro Credentials

4 Feb 2021

Continuing & Professional Studies (CAPS) Executive Director Nazlin Hirji interviewed with the Toronto Star recently to discuss the importance of Micro-Credentials in terms of quick upskilling, reskilling, and career advancement options. From the article:

“Micro-credentials offer immediate career value to enable people to get a job, keep a job or seek advancement within their chosen field. They also provide digital skills, which now more than ever are a critical capacity valued by employers.”

With over sixteen (16) micro-credential options to choose from, students can find a quick credential pathway in areas of interest such as project management, RPN safe practice completion, business analysis, data science, and more. 

Micro-Credentials also offer quick upskilling options for those displaced from work due to the ongoing pandemic. From the article:

“There are many unemployed, under-employed and displaced individuals looking to reskill and upskill to further their career prospects or rejoin the workforce,” says Nazlin Hirji, executive director of Continuing and Professional Studies (CAPS) at Sheridan, which facilitates micro-credentials.
