The Personal Learning Record – centre update

Over the last three months of 2012 CYQ provided updates on its pledge of support for the Personal Learning Record (PLR), an online service dedicated to storing all Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) learner achievement. Final testing is currently taking place to ensure that CYQ are in a position to begin posting learner achievement to the PLR, and centres should be reminded of their role in ensuring that this happens successfully.
