Neville Carter is the CEO & Principal of the College of Law. He is a legal practitioner and academic of approx 40 years standing and established the IPLS program in New Zealand and a similar program for PLT students in Malaysia. Mr Carter has been Principal of the College of Law for over 20 years.  

The IPLS program in New Zealand provides tutoring for that country's  version of Malaysia's Certificate of Legal Practice, which is required for practice in Malaysia.
PLT stands for "Professional Legal Training" the Australian equivalent of the CLP, expect that it is pratise based, and almost impossible to fail.

The  statement above seems to suggest that proposals  to convert the CLP from an academic exam based program into a "practice based" or "practical" course are well advanced. As reported before on this blog, the new CLP can be expected to be far more expensive than the current program, and may well require PTPTN funding.
