Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is defined as a process whereby prior learning is given a value. RPL can operate to provide recognition for advanced entry and non-standard admissions to educational pathways and is also used to award credit for elements within programmes. The Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) ePortfolio Roadshow project resulted in the launch of the My Experience RPL Assessment Toolkit. The toolkit includes an information website and an online RPL application tool for candidates looking for access or advanced entry to a higher education programme. In addition, an online course has been developed for higher education staff seeking professional development in RPL assessment skills and in supporting RPL applicants effectively.
