Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

The structure of this unit standard based qualification makes the Recognition of Prior Learning possible. Learner and assessor should jointly decide on methods to determine prior learning and competence in the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes implicit in the qualification and the associated unit standards. RPL will be done by means of an integrated assessment.

This Recognition of Prior Learning may allow for:

  • Accelerated access to further learning at this or higher levels on the NQF.
  • Gaining of credits for unit standards in this qualification.
  • Obtaining this qualification in whole or in part.

All Recognition of Prior Learning is subject to quality assurance by the relevant ETQA or an ETQA that has a Memorandum of Understanding with the relevant ETQA.
