The average age profile of apprentices is changing and increasing numbers of adults over the age of 25 are starting an apprenticeship. This study explores the use and uptake of recognition of prior learning (RPL) amongst adult apprentices, along with a consideration of the impacts to earlier completion and the pay-off in terms of employment outcomes and wages. Overall, shortened pathways are not adversely affecting outcomes but cultural attitudes, inconsistent treatment, funding of RPL, and skill sets is affecting uptake.
