Recognition of prior learning (RPL) in the Australian vocational education and training (VET) system is the process of assessing someone's relevant prior learning and existing skills to grant formal recognition. RPL is an important mechanism for people with pre-existing skills to gain formal recognition. There are however known issues with RPL, as it can be costly and difficult to offer as a training provider. This report explores the nature of RPL that is taking place in Australia from a variety of dimensions.
