Description - APL and the Bilingual Learner by Meena Wood

Assessment and accreditation of prior learning systems are now widely used in colleges to provide access for potential students by harnessing their prior knowledge and skills. But one major issue, language and literacy, has not yet been adequately addressed, and our education system still presents many barriers for non-native speakers of English. This work focuses on practical and pro-active ways of approaching language and literacy problems. It explores ways of resourcing APL systems, and also how to integrate them into a college's organizational structures. The central chapters look in detail at model systems for assessing prior linguistic ability; accrediting evidence from overseas qualifications; and also explore the role of the guidance advocate worker. There is strong emphasis on teaching and learning skills, and case studies, and examples are supplied to illustrate how APL systems can be of benefit to all students.
