Credentialism

Parent term: Credential

1 definition

Credentialism can be defined as a general increase in the level of education of workers that is unrelated to these underlying requirements of the jobs in which they are employed. It can arise through workers using educational attainment to compete with each other for better jobs in the knowledge that employers use this as an imperfect signal of ability or lower training costs.
