Successfully building its presence  and helping economies recover, prior learning assessment and recognition (PLAR) and micro-credentials have proven to be strong companions for adult learners seeking to reskill or upskill. Shorter timeframes, decreased costs, improved self-efficacy - PLAR and micro-credentials have something to offer to a range of stakeholders. However, it is the dynamic duo of the two that can truly bring enhanced benefits to learners, communities and economies. 

Please join us as we learn about micro-credentials and PLAR based on results of the leading industry research and studies from across Canada.
