PLAR: Rhetoric or Reality?
This year, the BC PLAN symposium takes a close look at the actual status of Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) in British Columbia. For many years the rhetoric has been that adults with formal, non-formal and informal learning may have their prior learning and experience assessed and recognized for advanced placement in post-secondary education programs or for securing employment particularly in regulated occupations.
Attend the symposium to find out if the BC reality of PLAR supports the rhetoric?
