Recognition of Prior Learning

Add to favourites

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) allows you to use evidence of work-based experience and learning to support your personal and career development. 

What can RPL do?

RPL can help you value and build on the learning you have gained informally and to use this recognition to:

• go on to more study or training
• provide evidence towards a qualification or for a job application
• gain credit points that you can use later 

More information can be found in the Guiding Principles of RPL, the RPL manager guide, the RPL user guide.
