In 2000/01, the province reviewed the way in which adult learners were able to receive upgrading and post-secondary education. With the goal of having mobile credentials, the service delivery model for the provision of adult education was developed. The strategy has three cornerstones - increasing capacity within post-secondary to offer prior learning assessment and recognition services; a new staff position to introduce and expand PLAR advisory services in the community and at adult learning centres; and support for workplace and industry PLAR projects.
