What is RPL?

Recognition of prior learning is a process whereby, through assessment, credit is given to learning which has already been acquired in different ways. RPL is a process that allows candidates an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Candidates undergo a series of assessments specifically designed to assist them to display their competence. At the end of the assessment process each candidate is issued with credits for the learning that they have been able to display. This process also will help to identify the gaps in the learners learning and have a tailor made process on how to best help the learner to fill these gaps in their learning. Each process will be different for the particular learner. These credits are linked to SAQA-registered Qualifications, Professional designations, jobs, and access to Qualifications. Through RPL, a candidate could earn credit for a few Unit Standards or a full Qualification. RPL recognises any learning that the candidate has acquired, whether it was from formal, non-formal, in-formal training, workplace experience, or general life experience.
