Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Skills but not qualified?
RPL is a process whereby you demonstrate that you currently have the required skills and knowledge for particular units/qualifications within the industry that you are experienced. RPL focuses on your life and work experiences and how they meet the criteria of the national qualifications.
Through your experiences you may be able to gain a full qualification or a partial qualification. QTS have created a Recognition of Prior Learning kit that includes a portfolio of evidence checklist. The checklist details the information and evidence you need to collect and provide in order to demonstrate that you have the required skills and knowledge to obtain the units/qualification. The process is rather straight forward and we are here to help with any questions that you may have along the way.
However you look at it, RPL may be the solution to this frustrating problem of having the skills but not the qualification.
