This means their students will have a structure to be able to demonstrate to potential employer to get a job or to an existing employer to gain a promotion.This information could also be used to gain grant funding or seeking investment funding or a loan.View this page at: http://eportfolio.acseducation.edu.au/user/view.php?id=60
