International Diploma in Workforce Competency and Management

Recognition of Prior Learning (Level 4/5 – Diploma)

Outstanding global competencies essential for business experience

The Recognition of Prior Learning (International Diploma in Workforce Competency and Management)  is the process for recognizing learning that has its source inexperience and/or previous formal, non-formal, and informal learning contexts. This includes knowledge and skills gained within the school, college, and university and outside formal learning situations such as through life and work experiences.

The focus of the RPL Toolkit is on recognizing learning that is gained from experience rather than from formal learning. Learning from experience is different from formal learning: it is largely unstructured, it is more personal and more individualized, and is often unconsciously gained. It is, however, just as real as learning acquired in a formal academic setting. In addition, it can be more permanent as it is not readily forgotten or lost.

The SWEP Kit can be used to benchmark working adults’ skills and learning gained through experience as part of their personal development or for career planning. Working adults or Experienced personnel might want to map their prior skills, knowledge and ability against a particular job requirement or particular qualification or training program.

The RPL booklet is specially designed to upgrade working personnel or entrepreneurs with more than 3 years of working or business experience into a Technical and Vocational Education & Training (TVET) Competency Diploma.
