What is an LER and why should I have one?
Think of it like a digital resume. In the skilled labor industry, an LER, or Learning and Experience Record, is a document that serves as a comprehensive record of an individual's education, training, and work experience. It is a way for workers in industries such as construction, engineering, or manufacturing to document their skills and knowledge, and to demonstrate their competence to employers and other stakeholders.
An LER typically includes information about the worker's academic qualifications, professional licenses, certifications, and training courses they have completed. It may also include details about the worker's work history, including the projects they have worked on, the roles they have played, and the skills they have developed. In some cases, the LER may also contain assessments of the worker's performance, such as feedback from supervisors or clients.
The purpose of an LER is to provide a detailed and verifiable record of the worker's skills and experience that can be used to support career advancement, job mobility, and professional development.
It can also be used by employers to assess the qualifications of job candidates and to make informed decisions about hiring, training, and promotion.
