STEP 1 – Contacting the Institution


The first step is for learners to make contact with the education provider who will be delivering the education programme and to enquire about their procedure for RPL. Once initial contact is made, the education provider will refer the learner to the department or person in their organisation who arranges and manages their RPL structures. Alternatively, a good place to start is to research on the website of the individual education provider to see if they have published their RPL procedure on their website. 


Preliminary actions

  • Learners should search online or through brochures and other promotional materials for contact details of the education provider who are offering the training programme they are interested in.
  • Learners then make contact with the education provider to enquire about their RPL procedure.
