Benefits for Employers

APEL acknowledges workplace learning for the benefit of both the employers and employees. It supports training and staff development strategies. Employers encourage APEL because it helps the organisation to:

  • Increase motivation and interest in workplace practice on the part of the employees;
  • Reduce the amount of time needed to complete a qualification and therefore, requiring less time away from the workplace;
  • Generate new ideas and development in the workplace as a result of process of reflection on practice by employees; and
  • Improve employee retention, and reduce recruitment and training cost
