For discussion of: Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), access and Articulation – moving between the sub-frameworks of Umalusi, Higher Education (CHE), and the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO).
Thank you for the reply. Yes indeed, it is sad that the proper measures are not put into place.
I was asked by a client – does the entry level requirements have to be accredited training, e.g. if the entry level requirement is economics at level 5, is an in-house program acceptable? I am not sure on how to answer this and can’t…[Read more]
Hi jenny, welcome into the discussion even at this late stage. Nothing has changed as far as i know and the rules are there for the reasons as set out in the discussion. In essence we should be conducting some form of pre-entry or diagnostic assessment to ensure the requirements are there.
We complain about high drop out rates and bad achievement…[Read more]
I know this is years later, however do you know what the Seta’s stance is on this 1 please? Has there been any changes to this rule?
I understand that the entry level requirements are absolutely necessary as a pre-requisite as a learner needs to have the fundamentals to be able to cope with a qualification. The question is – are…[Read more]

In my opinion RPL should be one of the key instruments for providing access to qualifications, and career advancement for people who were previously excluded from education and participation in the economy. So all these documents are important but only the start of the process of achieving redress.
In 2016 DHET published a document – the RPL…[Read more]
Hi members – I am glad that this discussion was revived – thanks to Katherine.
I am interested in making contact with anyone who has run RPL in the Construction sector.
