Recognition of Prior Learning is a process through which various forms of evidence of learning (formal and informal) is collected and benchmarked against the requirements of the units of competency that make up a qualification.
At Future Academy, the process starts with an interview of the candidate in order to determine his/her eligibility for RPL. Afterwards, with the assistance of a qualified trainer and assessor, the candidate works on gathering all the necessary pieces of evidence as set about in the qualification’s RPL kit.
