Recognising Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognising Prior Learning (RPL) is a process which allows education providers to value knowledge, skills and experience of individuals regardless of where they have been acquired. These competencies may have been formally achieved through an educational institution or obtained informally through the workplace, hobbies or interests. By recognising this learning and experience, individuals can gain academic credit which can be used to enhance their learning journey or career prospects.
