Business Cover Image Micro-credentials


Micro-credentials are bite-sized pieces of learning perfect for upskilling yourself or your team.

Wintec currently offers three micro-credentials that have been developed in conjunction with the automotive and personal lending industries to ensure employees have the skills and knowledge to meet the increasing need for best-practice, high-standard service.

The micro-credential series includes: 

Personal Lending Skills (Automotive Industry)  
Contractual Requirements (Automotive Industry) 
Legal Context (Personal Lending) 

While learners do not need to be working in specific industries, it is expected that most learners enrolling in micro-credentials will be working and come with varying levels of knowledge and experience.

Press the play button and watch Group Director of Business, Enterprise, Infomation Technology and Media Arts, Sam Cunnane, explain what a micro-credential is and how it can give you the edge in all aspects of your professional life.

About the faculty

Micro-Credential programmes are run out of the Centre for Business and Enterprise.

Centre for Business and Enterprise

To remain competitive, business models and people need to adapt to the changing world. Today’s employers are looking for more than just a qualification. They are also looking for specific attributes – values, behaviours and skills. This is where the Wintec Centre for Business and Enterprise is educating people with the skills and attributes needed not just for today, but for tomorrow's world.

The Centre for Business and Enterprise (CBE) has strong links with employers through their employer partnerships and advisory groups. Staff are highly qualified and are represented in many professional bodies, like CAANZ, CPA, CFA, AAPNZ and HRINZ. They can help you get involved with these organisations too. Depending on your programme of study you may have opportunities for work experience through visits to workplaces and through projects and internships for businesses and community groups. Events are also available where you can meet employers. 

The labour market in New Zealand is following a global trend: skilled workers will be in strong demand for years to come. We take pride in giving you the applied skills employers want. Those skills will make you stand out.
