Learners are always in high demand. Whether you’re a student weighing your career options, or an experienced professional reimagining your career path, TALENT helps you identify the skills you need to get ahead and master them in the way you want.

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.

Who Is Talent ?

TALENT is bold, connected, and empowered to meet global digital transformation head on. As an ecosystem of learners and employers, we are building resiliency into key economic sectors, enabling organizations to evolve and individuals to thrive. We are transforming together and for the future, in step with emerging needs and for a lifetime of meaningful employment for all. To do this we are focusing on three problems that we call skills signalling, skills development and skills articulation.
