In 2004, a group of First Nation, Métis, and non-Aboriginal practitioners met to discuss how the nine Essentials Skills (ES) and Recognizing Prior Learning (RPL) should be introduced and taught to Aboriginal communities in Manitoba. This meeting eventually resulted in the development of a four-level certification program called Igniting the Power Within (ITPW).
This document, the second in a series, contains the curriculum for a two-day workshop that focuses on the use of portfolio development as a means of assessing prior learning. During the first day, participants learn how to build portfolios for themselves, while on the second day, they learn how to coach a client who wants to build a portfolio.
The authors have included a variety of learning activities; information about best practices; a detailed agenda; and sample forms and handouts.
