Background to Portfolios

An ePortfolio highlights all the Essentials Skills and technical knowledge and abilities that you have to offer to employers.

The Essential Skills framework provides the ideal language for highlighting the transferable skills which employers look for while a portfolio is the ideal tool for documenting and communicating evidence of those skills.

The Portfolio process recognizes and organizes all of the Essentials Skills that you have. The portfolio also shows what you are able to do through recognition of prior learning.

Other Benefits:

  • Building a portfolio can be a journey of self-discovery.
  • A good portfolio is a great tool to introduce what you have to offer to employers.
  • An ePortfolio can help you find a job.

This personal website will belong to you and can be made as private or public as you wish.
