The Practical Training E-Portfolio
The practical training e-portfolio is designed to allow students to record and archive different aspects of their learning experience during their practical training period. It act as a creative platform of displaying student's work and documenting all the evidence related to this work. In this e-portfolio students can attach documents, images, video files and presentations that reflect their personal learning journey.
Also, it can be shared by students as their career e-portfolio when they apply for jobs. Moreover it can be exported to a PDF Report so as to have an offline copy containing the entire record of a student's practical training experience.
The Office of Career Advising and Student Training is here to support you and hope to make your practical training program a great one in both professional and personal development.
