I have reworked the APEL yet again. Two reasons for this. Firstly, I have brought it more into line with the modules I am seeking exemption and secondly, having seen the work of Sharon Kaplan. Sharon's APEL is excellent and while I don't intend to copy or plagiarise her work it has acted as guidance. In Particular I have worked on the text. My normal everyday writing skills are in a technical environment and tend to be straight to the point binary statements. Here and beyond into the course this will not be good enough and I need to work on my writing skills. I have a copy of "the arts - Good study Guide" by The OU and I am finding the chapters on writing skills to be particularly useful.
I have revisited the photographs and resized. They were too big and cut and paste into a word document wasn't working, so now I have real sized them for the page at 300 dpi and have the larger size files if I need them.
In addition I am revisiting my entire back portfolio to ensure that my best work is included in the application.
