Please note SAQA is in the process of documenting RPL success cases.
RPL for advanced standing is when a person has been working at a senior level of his organization for many years. As he/she is holding a bachelors degree he/she is not allowed to enrol for a masters degree in Management (or any degree) as it requires an NQF Level 8 qualification (honours degree or postgraduate diploma). Through an RPL process he/she could be assessed in terms of knowledge gained which could include assessment against the NQF Level 8 descriptors. If successful he could be allowed into the masters study. Another example is of a person without a masters degree who is allowed to read for Doctorate degree through RPL.
If you know anyone who has been through a similar RPL process please let me know.
