The main contribution here is to rebrand the 'skills gap' as a 'skills canyon'. I have no doubt there's a skills gap, but if companies want it to be addressed they need to do two things: increase their support for public, free and accessible learning opportunities; and pay employees enough to make the considerable investment of time and effort to acquire high-level skills worthwhile. Sure, adopting a microcredentials system might help with this. But it would be a mistake to think that microcredentials can make up for shortfalls in investment and remuneration.
