Recognition of Prior Learning Mechanism

The major purpose of setting up a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) mechanism under the Qualifications Framework (QF) is to enable employees of various backgrounds to receive formal recognition of the knowledge, skills and experience already acquired. It facilitates employees with learning aspirations to know what competencies they have acquired through experience or previous training in the industries, so that they can determine their starting point for learning and progression, and reduce duplication in training for the same skills. In other words, they may skip certain familiar modules and proceed to courses of a relatively higher level or wider scope so that they can receive more effective training that better suits their needs. The RPL mechanism will operate based on the Specification of Competency Standards (SCSs) formulated by the respective industries to ensure its credibility.
