Recognition of Prior Learning and Credit Transfer in the QCF: Practice & Funding Implications
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfer are not the same. Recognition of Prior Learning in the Qualifications Credit Framework (QCF) is similar to Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) in the National Qualification Framework (NQF). RPL is defined by Ofqual as “the process undertaken on behalf of the learner to identify and recognise relevant learning, experience, knowledge or competences that he or she may have already and which contribute to the qualification or unit they plan to undertake”. RPL is not just applicable to whole units and there is no time limit on the evidence judged, as the assessor determines validity and authenticity in the usual way.
Credit Transfer works at unit level only and allows units which the learner has already to be transferred into a subsequent qualification. The unit and the credits it represents are transferred into the new qualification. No assessment is involved.
All centres offering QCF qualifications must offer RPL and Credit Transfer. Practitioners need to know how to use RPL from initial assessment through to learner achievement. Credit Transfer is equally important and for funded programmes means that financial claims must be adjusted to ensure funding for previously achieved units is not claimed again.

The Workshop will cover the following topics:
Understanding assessment in the QCF
The standards to which assessors and IQAs must work

It would be particularly helpful for staff involved in delivering PTLLS and CTLLS as the assessor and IQA qualifications now form part of these so RPL and Credit Transfer are required.
Our facilitators are all experts in their subject and have the real-world experience at a senior level to be able to offer best-practice advice.
Select a date/location for a profile of the facilitator who is scheduled for that date.
