Many skills are learned on the job and not through a structured classroom curriculum.  Such skills are invaluable and ought to be documented. The portfolio allows knowledge, skills and attitudes to be visible for job applications, career planning, documenting development milestones and determining further education and training requirements. The portfolio is an essential tool for career progression and allows employees to evaluate employer’s skills at the workplace as portfolio showcases the individual’s competencies more authentically, supported with evidence.

This course introduces students to the method of documenting informal learning to develop the portfolio. This course aims to help participants systematically document the identified competencies in the course of their learning through the different life stages, supported with relevant artefacts.

Participants will also be encouraged to explore and examine their experience to gain insights and make meaning. Through the course, participants will have the opportunity to learn and demonstrate reflective practice as a habit of mind which will benefit them in their future career progression.
