Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

RPL is the formal recognition of the skills and knowledge a person has regardless of how or where these skills may have been attained, that is, through formal or informal training work experience, (paid and unpaid) voluntary work and life experience. The evidence provided for RPL must address the currency of competencies being assessed. KIC confirms that all students, potential or actual, of all offered accredited courses are provided with full recognition of their current skills and knowledge. KIC promotes acknowledgement of 'non-traditional' forms of learning as valid pathways for recognition of competency achievement during the RPL assessment process. RPL will result in exemptions and it can be determined by applying for an application from your agent or directly from Kensington International College.
