report image

The network is pleased to launch the report; Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) in the University Sector: Policies, case studies and issues arising. This second report of the network focuses on the recognition of prior learning (RPL); an increasingly important aspect of lifelong learning in the university sector in Ireland and abroad.

The report sets out national and international policy and discourse on RPL and through a number of case studies describes examples of RPL policies and practices within the Irish university sector today. A discussion of the issues which emerged from these case studies and the experiences of members of the FIN inform the concluding part of the report which also offers a number of principles for consideration.
