The Recognition of Prior Learning is the process for
recognising learning that has come from experience and/or previous formal,
non-formal and informal learning.
This could include knowledge and skills gained within
school, college and university and outside formal learning situations such as
through life and work experiences or even through a hobby.
RPL can be used by a wide range of people either to help
them re-enter learning or to contribute towards a programme of learning or
simply to identify their skills in order to progress in their career. Through
RPL it may be possible to make a claim certificate/diploma or Credit Points
which can reduce the amount of time needed to achieve the required learning
programme or qualification.
Those who might benefit
people who have been
out of the education system for a long time and/or who may lack formal
qualifications and/or confidence as learners
adults returning to
looking for a way to demonstrate their learning to prospective employers
people wanting to
improve upon existing qualifications
those wanting to
re-train or change careers
students at colleges,
higher education institutions and other learning and training providers
people who have taken
non-formal learning or training in the workplace or through community-based
people who have gained
a range of skills and knowledge through volunteering
or through activities
or projects within their community
school students who
have been involved in extra-curricular activities
wishing to claim RPL may not have a strong academic education – but they do
need to be keen to learn from and about their own experiences and about
themselves. It is important to stress that recognition is given for what has
been learned from experience and not for the experience itself.
