Event Details

All GA programmes are funded by Skills Development Scotland.

This session is intended to support candidates to understand a specialised process known as Recognition of Prior or Informal Learning (RPL) or (RPiL). This process enables candidates to better understand how to quantify and record their prior work experience to meet the minimum entry criteria OR to gain ‘advanced standing’ within a GA Programme to enter at an advanced level beyond first year.

All academic offers of entry are decided by the Programme Leader on individual merit. In more substantial cases of RPL/RPiL, evidence may be gathered through a structured professional discussion. Strong RPL / RPiL candidates have an opportunity to complete a GA programme in less than the normal 4 years.

Target Audience: Candidates with programme-relevant work experience who are supported by their employer to upskill or reskill through attainment of a Graduate Apprenticeship qualification.

This interactive RPL series will cover:

  • An introduction to Recognition of Prior Learning and experience at work
  • Understanding how work experience and prior learning can assist you to meet the minimum programme entry criteria OR allow you advanced standing to a level beyond first year
  • Making your experience count in the application process as a GA candidate
  • Understanding how GCU assesses RPL claims
  • What is a Structured Professional Discussion?
  • Q&A
