Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Lifelong Learning in Higher Education Project is a HCI national initiative and is a collaboration between the IUA Universities, and Technological Universities.  It aims to build a consistent and coherent approach to recognition of prior learning (RPL) within and across the entire public higher education (HE) sector.

DCU is an active member of the RPL project and the DCU RPL Working Group has been meeting regularly to strengthen, and bring greater transparency and clarity, to the RPL process in DCU.

The session will give an overview of RPL, the national RPL initiative and the steps involved in the RPL process from a Faculty Office perspective.  There will be a chance to ask questions as well.
