Abstract: This project builds on site-specific qualitative data to develop a profile of learning activity which now is largely unrecognized by education providers and explores various learning strategies used by adults in three locations: a unionized factory, a community based training program, and a literacy program. The project developed a Skills and Knowledge Profile (SKP), as a tool for prior learning assessment and recognition. The research conducted in this project examines the educational opportunities provided by the sponsors as well as collects and integrates suggestions for enhancing a learner-centered climate. More broadly, it aims to contribute to the broader national policy debate and implementation strategy for Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR), pressing both employers and educational institutions to validate a broader range of informal learning activity
