RPL has opened up new learning opportunities for thousands of people across the country. Our RPL Stories section gives you an insight into the transformative impact RPL has had and how it helps learners achieve their potential.
RPL has allowed me to build on my existing qualifications by recognising what I had learned in the various jobs I had since I first left higher education.
I feel RPL has opened up a number of opportunities and introduced me to different types of writing techniques. It has also given me a renewed passion and interest in writing.
During my career, I have worked across multiple industries which have allowed me to see how change can be driven, designed, and facilitated. RPL has a major role to play in this process.
A key challenge in the RPL process was giving myself credit and accepting how far I had come, which has made me very proud. RPL has been an integral part in helping me to progress to Masters level.
My incredible journey to perform in 13 countries around the world, in front of over 2.5 million people that translated from a BA to a MA to a Doctorate was only made possible by institutions acknowledging RPL.
I feel proud to have had the opportunity to successfully complete the BA. Leaving school early to embark on my military career has meant I’ve felt a sense of ‘unfinished business’.
When I left school I actually started a university degree but left after my first year to pursue a dream of becoming an airline pilot.
RPL was my only option, in the current system, as I didn’t have a level 8 undergrad.
