The IB is piloting micro-credentials—a new continuous professional learning opportunity for educators. Micro-credentials are self-directed and evidence-based, providing lifelong professional learning. This self-directed approach gives educators agency over how they learn.

The micro-credentials cover a range of educator capabilities, such as assessment literacy, conceptual understanding and student well-being.


The pilot will be hosted within Digital Promise. It is available to all educators regardless of programme or subject. The micro-credentials in the pilot are currently available in English, additional languages will be added soon.

Participate in the pilot

The micro-credentials pilot begins on 3 April 2023 and will be ongoing. During the pilot, we encourage participants to complete as many micro-credentials as they would like. We also ask participants to provide feedback on the content and their learning experience.

Once participants have completed a micro-credential, we will share a brief feedback survey via email. Participants can also choose to take part in a focus group and share their experiences.
