Micro-credentials Programme - Trinity College Dublin


Generic MC

The School of Social Work and Social Policy at Trinity College Dublin is delighted to launch our new micro-credentials programme.  Micro-credentials are a new, exciting initiative from Trinity.  They are short, accredited learning experiences that facilitate flexible and innovative professional development.  Through micro-credentials we, the School of Social Work and Social Policy, can bring the latest research evidence to those involved in frontline professional practice, research or policy development and analysis in a way that suits your needs.  Our micro-credentials will be delivered online to meet the varying schedules of our learners. We are committed to ensuring a high quality, dynamic and relevant curriculum across a range of courses for a broad range of students, from graduates to advanced professionals. Our track record in innovation is evidenced through this new micro-credential offering.

There are two micro-credentials being delivered in Autumn 2021. Both are 4 weeks in duration and are fully online meaning learners can study in their own time.

  • The first is Legal Training for Child Protection and Welfare Practitioners offered in partnership with Mason, Hayes and Curran.  It is designed to meet the specific need for education and training in legal statues and the application of those in practice for all health, social care and policing professionals working in the area of child protection and welfare. 
  • The second is Disability and Child Protection: Towards New Understanding which will provide students with an understanding of key issues in the area of disability and child protection.  Uptake of current best evidence, insights from seminal inquiry reports, innovations and insights from disability theory, research, and activism as well as practice wisdom will be instrumental in achieving this. 

The application date for both of these micro-credentials is October 4th.  For full details of the micro-credentials, entry requirements and costs please visit
