Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a mechanism under the Qualifications Framework (QF). It aims to enable practitioners with various backgrounds to receive formal recognition of the knowledge, skills and experience already acquired. Aspiring practitioners can determine their starting points for learning and progression based on the qualification levels they have already acquired to minimise the need for repetitious training of the same skills. Employers may also formulate training programmes in respect of the competencies and qualification levels attained by their employees to meet organizational needs.
