Prior Learning Assessment – School Is Not The Only Place of Learning | Compétences Montréal, 20 June 2013 [cached]
"A major step was achieved when learning stopped being considered the exclusive domain of educational institutions," commented Guy Fortier, executive director of Compétence Montréal, a group of twelve post-secondary colleges in Montreal working to promote prior learning assessment.
"To individuals PLA degrees will represent the surest way to better working conditions, finding a new job or apply for a newly announced post in their company, explains Guy Fortier.
" These good figures are partly due to degrees, adds Guy Fortier, but the impact of PLA on individuals' self-confidence and pride is not to be overlooked. What we have now is people having experienced failure in school during their youth being gratified with a certification or a degree from a specialists in their own field! " Effectively PLA is an assessment system demanding the individual to demonstrate their expertise. In professions ruled by a professional body, the assessment is controled by members of that body. In colleges and in vocational training centers in School Boards, PLA is performed by teachers and trainers, be it in office automation, computer techniques, day care services, etc. And in sectoral workforce committees these tasks are done by specialists: carpenters, cabinet makers, mechanics, etc. " All of these will have used assessment tools to evaluate the expertise of the individuals asking for a certification or a degree, explains Guy Fortier.
" Companies that are on the cutting edge in the matter of human ressources management are already aware of the advantages from assessing and recognizing the expertise of your employees, says Guy Fortier.
"Quebec is well equiped with a good system because, unlike the rest of Canada, we have developed a skill-based approach, even at the school education level, says Guy Fortier.
