About Us

The Centre for Recording Achievement (CRA) is a national network organisation and a registered educational charity. It seeks to ‘promote the awareness of recording achievement and action planning processes as an important element in improving learning and progression throughout the world of education, training and employment’.

CRA offers a range of services to members, other institutions/organisations and their communities aimed at supporting the implementation of Progress Files, Personal Development Planning and e-portfolios.


The aim of the Centre is to promote good practice in Recording Achievement and Personal Development planning, across sectors, through:

  • Clarifying and promoting the values which underpin Recording Achievement processes wherever they may be operating;
  • Providing expertise and services to members and non-members
  • Developing a base of evidence to refine theoretical understanding and practical application of Recording Achievement processes
  • Sharing expertise and experience, and strengthening the connections between policy and practice; and
  • Developing practitioner skills and competencies by providing consultancy, guidance and training on Recording Achievement processes for learning, employment and Personal Development

Our Website

This website has been established to serve anyone interested in the quality of Recording Achievement, Personal Development Planning and ePortfolios.

For the past 25 years, there has been increasing use of a range of ways of encouraging individual learners to identify, articulate and evidence their learning and experience to add to and enrich examination qualifications.

A key benefit is for learners to reflect on this and to plan the next step in learning or employment on the basis of clearer information.
