The National Forum is pleased to share a new Forum Insight on recognition of prior learning (RPL) in Irish higher education, available here. A national framework for RPL, to be recognised by all higher education institutions, has been set out as an objective in the National Strategy for Higher Education to 2030. If institutions across the country are to develop effective RPL practices it is important that a common understanding of the concept is first established. This Forum Insight aims to foster such a common understanding. Building on existing good practice, it explains the various forms of learning that can be recognised and outlines the conditions which can assist staff to ensure that the potential of every student to succeed is optimised.
