Recognition of Prior Learning – RPL procedure Infographic

RPL, one of the most awesome education policies EVER!

Why learn what you already know? The RPL policy describes how you can be credited for experience, knowledge and skills.

The intent behind RPL is to recognise and quantify a person’s relevant experiences and knowledge against a specific qualification.

Many adults who grew up in the 1980’s in South Africa were unable to focus on a career based education as a result of apartheid policies controlling business and society. They may now find themselves stuck in middle management as they don’t have sufficient qualifications to allow them access to higher level positions.

They should pursue an RPL intervention if they are able to provide evidence of their experience to justify being awarded the qualification.


If you know someone who is overlooked for promotion at work because they lack qualifications, share this post with them.

Everyone deserves to be inspired to release their full potential.

The RPL infographic below outlines the process followed to pursue Recognition of Prior Learning.

Education and Training organisations are required to have and apply an RPL policy as it forms part of their Quality Management Systems required for accreditation.
