Recognition of Prior Learning -
In the University context, the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the evaluation and acknowledgement of the knowledge and skills that a candidate has gained other than through formal study to enable him/her to gain access to higher education even though he/she doesn’t necessarily meet the normal entrance requirements. This includes knowledge gained as a result of non-formal study, paid and unpaid work experience, community and organisational involvement and individual inquiry.
RPL is based on a developmental model, not a deficit model of adult learning; it builds on knowledge and skills that adults have already acquired. RPL facilitates lifelong learning.
We use RPL for access and advanced standing.
RPL as an assessment instrument -
Note: Candidates will also provide experiential learnings from community involvement, home and education (in the manner explained in the following slides).
Our friendly RPL case study... Graham North
Graham started out at Adecco Recruitment Services, a Swiss-owned global company, as the Group Treasury and Legal Manager. Adecco’s SA HO is in Durban and it boasts 15 branches countrywide. Graham has since been promoted to Company Accountant, in addition to the above-mentioned portfolio.
I’m very thankful to Graham for granting me permission to showcase his RPL document, as it is a very personal account of one’s life.
