P.L.A.R. is Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition:

  • Prior Learning is all the learning that someone has gained throughout their life, including formal education and all the learning gained informally, outside of school. We learn valuable skills, knowledge, and attitudes in all areas of our lives.
  • Assessment is the identification and evaluation of our life learning.
  • Recognition means to have our learning acknowledged and valued - by ourselves and by others.

PLAR is used across Canada by schools, colleges, universities, employers and governments to formally recognize life learning.
