Welcome to Workplace Wednesday, connecting you with resources that link literacy, business, industry, and the workplace.
A Resource Manual for Competency Portfolio Development
Written by Lesley Hamilton, Suzanne Hooke and Sharon Davison.
Peterborough, Ont.: Literacy Ontario Central South, 2011.
For use by employment counsellors, literacy practitioners, academic advisors, and human resource professional, this online guide was developed to help individuals through the process of recognizing and demonstrating prior learning, skills and achievements, and making plans to achieve work, educational or personal goals. It may be of particular interest for practitioners working with older clients working on skills to increase their employability.
The manual outlines four specific steps and actions: refection, research, integration, and portfolio completion. For each step there is a practitioner checklist and client activities.
