ALBE PLAR Portfolio Development

Course number: PLAR 0011

Course description:

The Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) Portfolio Development course is primarily designed to support NWT adult learners, who want to receive a NWT Secondary School Diploma (Grade 12 diploma) through the Adult Recognition Model. Adult learners taking ALBE 140 – 160 courses will use their portfolios to apply for PLAR credits that count towards their diploma. However, the process of developing PLAR portfolios will also benefit adult learners taking ALBE 110 – 130 courses. Students will develop their own personal portfolio that will help them identify their strengths, increase their self-confidence, and set goals for their futures. The seven main units of study are a safe environment; introduction to Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR); PLAR portfolios; skills statements; PLAR documentation; goal setting; and PLAR portfolio assessment. The course also consists of an additional unit, called ‘Directions for PLAR Credit,’ that should be taught to ALBE 140/150 students wanting to complete all components of the application process towards an NWT Senior Secondary School Diploma. It should be noted the NWT Senior Secondary School Diploma is awarded by the Department of Education, Culture and Employment to adult learners that meet the graduation requirements.
