Many staff working in education will be familiar with processing claims for credit transfer where learners may have previously gained formal qualifications which they wish to use towards a further qualification. 

Staff may be less familiar with the processes involved when learners come with non-formal and informal learning which they wish to use towards a further qualification.

Working with a range of stakeholders, we have developed an RPL Tool for use by learning and training providers, employers and human resource personnel.

The tool is designed to signpost users to a range of information relevant to their needs or interest in RPL and highlights some of the different ways RPL can be used.
