Abstract
This presentation considers APL with special reference to the National Certificate in Carpentry. Builders now need to be Licensed Building Practitioners to carry out a large range of building work whereas in the past this was not required. This is one of the reasons students seek a formal qualification. The Goal To establish existing student knowledge and fill any gaps in knowledge and understanding with the minimum input from the student and the tutor. APL is the assessment of knowledge and skills acquired through experiential learning that is formalised and accredited in a nationally recognised qualification framework. In other words we recognise “on the job” learning and match it to a formal qualification such as carpenter or chef.
