Call for Presenters CAPLA is looking for real-life success stories from people who are committed to continuous improvement in the way they recognize prior learning – in counselling and advising roles, as learning assessors, and as system developers and researchers. Each presentation will be 45 minutes in length and will demonstrate the use (or intended use) of practices or processes recommended in the RPL QA MANUAL.

CAPLA’s recognition of prior learning (RPL) Boot Camp is for the brave, strong and disruptive innovator who wants to improve the way we acknowledge learning in Canada! Can you imagine a better process to recognize and assess transferable skills and competencies? Can you re-think the way you advise immigrants, job-seekers, older workers or adult learners looking for meaningful work and appropriate training in Canada? Can you make time for someone to tell their life and learning story? Can you visualize the impact of assessing a person’s knowledge, skills and abilities with greater confidence, reliability and fairness?

If you can answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you may be a Boot Camp cadet so get ready for an intense work-out to ramp up your RPL activities. Your quality-assured ‘tools of the RPL trade’ will be the Canadian Guiding Principles for Quality RPL Practice, a Six Step Quality RPL process, Self-Audit Checklists and real-life stories from experienced presenters. You can help strengthen Canada’s labour force by valuing, assessing and re-deploying people’s workplace skills and life experiences in efficient ways, to meet job requirements, industry standards or core competencies. This two-day event is a unique experience for the recognition of prior learning (RPL) in diverse fields, and is about capacity-building, efficiency and quality. Listen to real-life success stories and try out new ideas that will revolutionize your career advising and assessment world.
