RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

Recognition of Prior Learning is the comparison of previous learning and experience that a student has obtained against the learning outcomes of a specific qualification, and the acceptance thereof for purposes of certification. This is conducted through a comparison of obtained and recognized competencies against the competence requirements, both theoretical and practical in nature, of a recognized qualification or part thereof, and the recognition of both learning and experience, not based on only historical evidence but also on the validity, authenticity and currency of competencies of an applicant.

 

In the recognition of prior learning, Villioti Fashion Institute will consider learning and experience obtained through formal education and training as well as knowledge and competencies obtained through practical experience and learning. Should you wish to engage in Recognition of Prior Learning we will be happy to discuss the processes involved with you in accordance with our policy.

 

It is also the purpose of RPL to provide access to further learning through the recognition of prior learning and to facilitate redress. These purposes include the following options to the candidate:

 

  • Personal development and or certificating of current skills without progression into a learning programme.
  • Progressing into a learning programme where Recognition of Prior Learning is used as a fast – tracking mechanism for progression within a learning programme.
  • Transfer of credits without re-learning.
  • Mature-age exemption for students over the age of 23 when a secondary school exit level has not been completed.

 

Service and support to students form part of the pre-assessment advice and counselling within the context of the student centeredness of the RPL process. Counselling is provided towards the preparation of assessment, educational planning and post assessment support. Support is provided by RPL Advisory staff, registered and trained as assessors for the area of learning where RPL takes place.
