Assessment and accreditation of prior learning systems are now widely used in colleges to open up access for potential students by harnessing their prior learning, knowledge and skills. But one major issue, language and literacy, has not yet been adequately addressed, and our education system still presents many barriers for non-native speakers of English. "APL and the Bilingual Learner" focuses on practical and pro-active ways of approaching these problems.
Meena Wood explores both ways of resourcing APL systems and also how to integrate them into the college's organizational structures. The central chapters look in detail at model systems for assessing prior linguistic ability, accrediting evidence from overseas qualifications, and also explore the role of the guidance advocate worker. There is a strong focus on teaching and learning skills, and case studies and examples illustrate how APL systems can be of benefit to all students.
