Although our name would indicate that we are in the business of assessment, the truth is that profiling and facilitation make up the greatest part of our work with candidates. The APL process is individualised for each candidate and is dependent on the qualification sought, but always has three important steps:
Profiling is the initial consultation with the potential candidate. An interview between the Capable NZ profiler and the candidate is arranged to discuss their knowledge, skills and experience and potential goals. Capable NZ profile in a number of ways, dependent on the qualification, but all potential candidates will go through a profiling process before acceptance to ensure that the goals and expectations of the candidate are matched to the qualification sought.
During this part of the process the candidate is supported and guided by a highly skilled Facilitator. This guidance will enable the candidate to fully express the knowledge they have gained from their work and life experiences in a manner appropriate to the qualification requirements.
The assessment process is led by the candidate before a panel of experienced assessors including academic staff and industry specialist experts. Usually the oral presentation is supported with a portfolio which includes an agenda, over-view of the presentation, attestation and “evidence” from the candidate’s work context. The candidate will be required to answer questions from the panel.
