Buckle, John. (No date) A Learner's Introduction to Building on Your Experience.  The Learning From Experience Trust.

This publication is of value to tutors wishing to develop schemes for the assessment of prior learning, and can be used as a workbook for students.  The Learner's Introduction is based on a project in which the Trust worked with Sheffield City Polytechnic in designing a manual which could be used by non-standard entry applicants for Business Studies courses in higher education and who wanted their "uncertificated learning" to support their application and/or were seeking admission with advanced standing.  This publication is based upon that manual, edited so as to make it applicable in a variety of contexts, both formal and informal.
