Applications are open for the position of MC2 Project Lead on the Multi-Campus Micro-Credentials (MC2) system, funded through the Higher Education Authority’s Human Capital Initiative.

The Irish Universities Association (IUA) is the representative body of the university sector. It has recently secured funding for a major new project to develop a Multi-Campus Micro-Credentials (MC2) system in Irish Universities, providing a coherent national framework for quality assured and accredited micro-credentials. This full-time contract position is funded by this project.

The Multi-Campus Micro-Credential (MC2) project is a four-year programme, funded through the Higher Education Authority’s Human Capital Initiative, aimed at establishing a system of quality assured and accredited micro-credentials across the seven IUA universities. MC2 will provide up/re-skilling opportunities to those in employment and those seeking to enhance their employability, and to drive lifelong learning in Ireland, in close collaboration with enterprise. The MC2 programme will develop a collective national framework for micro-credentials across the universities; build engagement with enterprise for the development and roll-out of the micro-credentials programmes; and develop a co-ordinated ‘shop window’ portal to drive awareness of MC2.

Maynooth University is seeking to recruit a Project Lead to manage the University’s participation in the Multi-Campus Micro-Credentials programme, ensuring the delivery of all programme activities in a timely and efficient manner. Reporting to the Director of Postgraduate Academic Programmes, the Project Lead will work closely with colleagues in Graduate Studies and Registry, coordinating the development of professional and modular courses at the University, and leading the alignment and integration of MC2 programme activities and outcomes with University strategy with respect to the delivery of professional courses and postgraduate programmes. The successful candidate will also report to the IUA MC2 Programme Lead on a programme basis, and will work with MC2 project leads across the IUA institutions in the delivery of programme elements.
