This online workshop is aimed at employers who are looking to recognise the learning that employees have gained through life, work and educational experiences. Having the ability to acknowledge employees prior learning can then help identify how to recruit more effectively, retain and promote staff by creating learning and development strategies through the use of in house or external training.

During the workshop we will focus on practical activities that will make employers think about what skills and experience can be recognised with a mind to recruiting and retaining suitable staff who will feel valued and rewarded for the contribution they make in your organisation.

Key themes addressed over the morning:

Types of RPL
Core principles of RPL
Assessment of RPL
Uses of RPL as an employer
Case Studies to develop confidence

Workshop materials and pre-workshop activities

The workshop will be delivered on Zoom and in advance of the workshop you will be sent a suite of essential resources that you will need to access during the workshop. Some pre-workshop reading will also be sent, along with a short video for you to watch that covers the basic facts about the SCQF and the Partnership. These exercises should be completed in advance of the workshop and will take no more than 25 minutes to complete.

A great bite-sized introduction to RPL, just what I needed to decide to take this forward further.

A very useful session which explored some of the key issues around RPL with similar organisations, and how RPL can be applied in different scenarios using the SCQF as a vehicle.
