Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Agored Cymru seeks to enable learners to avoid the duplication of learning and assessment. This can be achieved by offering learners the opportunity to transfer credit i.e. recognise previously accredited achievement from within or outside the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) to count towards another qualification. Alternatively, learning or achievement that has not been certificated or accredited could be assessed and validated as part of the RPL process and then count towards the qualification.
Learners may claim RPL against a whole unit or several units. It is not possible to award part units, but where the RPL evidence does not fully meet the needs of a complete unit, the missing information may be provided via the same assessment processes that are undertaken by a taught group of learners.
Centres are required to develop processes to support learners, assessors and internal verifiers to use RPL effectively. Further information: Recognition of Prior Learning Policy and Procedure.
Please notify Agored Cymru of any successful claims for credit exemption or recognition of prior learning using this form: RPL Form.
