Recognition Of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning commonly known as RPL largely refers to an assessment process used to evaluate a person’s existing skill sets, knowledge and experience gained either by  non-formal or informal learning.


  • It aims to align the competencies of the un-regulated workforce of the country to the standardized National Vocational Qualifications.
  • To enhance the employability opportunities of an individual as well as provide alternative routes to higher education and
