Karina Curley is the Project Lead for the National RPL Project at DCU.

Karina is currently employed at Dublin City University (DCU) as a widening participation officer and project lead for the national Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) project. She joined DCU in 2010 and worked as a Student Learning Officer under the Student Support & Development Service prior to taking up her new roles.

Karina’s work on the RPL project aligns well with her belief that education is transformative. She views RPL as an opportunity to challenge existing structures and systems and offer new and enhanced entry pathways to individuals based on having prior learning formally recognised. She believes that higher education institutions need to adapt to the changing demographics of Irish society by recognising prior learning and offering more flexible part-time learning options.
