Benefits of RPL and Skill Recognition

by Matthew Pitt Chief Operating Officer at 3CIR
Recognition of prior learning, also known as RPL is becoming a popular concept in the present time. This learning concept is a process under which you identify your knowledge and skills against a qualification by the way of identification, mediation, assessment as well as acknowledgment of knowledge and skills obtained by the way of non-formal, informal or formal learning methods. 

To put it simply, RPL refers to an acknowledgment for the work that you have done or skills that you have acquired throughout your lifetime, which can contribute towards your qualification. RPL assessment helps to provide an opportunity to you using which you can identify your learning, get it assessed, and finally acknowledge it in the form of a formal qualification. 

Thus, RPL assessment can be considered as a straightforward process involving assessment of a person’s knowledge or skills irrespective of where and how the skills or knowledge were learned. RPL doesn’t judge the evidence of competence on the basis of credentials or qualifications that you have achieved. Even if you have achieved any of these, they tend to become part of their claim. 

RPL assessment is an amazing concept of the assessment of skills and knowledge against certain criteria. The criteria are outcome-based and not descriptive in nature. 

Benefits of RPL and skill recognition: 

Listed below are some of the benefits of RPL assessment and skill recognition: 

1. This concept helps to facilitate access for all the non-traditional students, thereby providing them with an opportunity using which they can showcase their talent on any platform. 
2. RPL helps to acknowledge the value of learning outside a formal setting. There are no books and work involved. 
3. The idea of RPL helps to validate the worth of learning students and enables them to progress to other education as well as training programs. 
4. RPL also helps to cut out unnecessary repetition as well as duplication of material which is already familiar to the student.
5. This type of learning helps to shorten the time necessary to earn qualification by any person rather than extending the same. This always keeps the students motivated about the course and they do not worry about the length of time involving the same. 

RPL assessment and skill recognition can improve your job profile and can also help you in a number of other ways.
