The term Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), refers to a broad spectrum of processes, all aimed at reaching a judgment of an individual’s personal particulars, current competencies, work and life experience, and formal and/or non-formal learning, assessed against transparent criteria, for a variety of purposes.

Referring to the processes through which the knowledge and skills a person acquired previously are measured and assessed for the purpose of formally recognising such achievements, the prior learning would be assessed against one or more unit standards, or components of a part-qualification or qualification. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) allows experienced adults to become qualified based on what they already know, and what skills/competences they already possess.
