Recognition of Prior Learning

What learners need to know?

By giving a person recognition of prior learning the person gets credit for what he/she know and can do, even if they did not learn that through a formal learning programme.
In order to get recognition for prior learning a learner will be assessed by a registered assessor against a specific unit standard. It may be that the learner has never received any formal training, but if he/she wants to be assessed they should get the opportunity. If the learner is competent against a certain unit standard he/she doesn't need to get training in that skill again. He/she will get recognition for the learning.

Recognition for prior learning (RPL) acknowledges attempts to redress the wrongs of the past by permitting workers, whether in Learnership programmes or not, who have extensive workplace experience to be assessed for competence in terms of unit standards and qualifications and giving them due recognition for the skills they have.
