Abstract This report reviews policies and practices on the Prior Learning Recognition (RPL) in Scotland and aims to identify crucial factors for the success of the prior learning recognition processes. This report forms a part of the Work Package 2 of the project "University Recognition of Prior Learning Centres - Bridging Higher Education with Vocational Education and Training" that was funded by European Commission under the Lifelong Learning Programme.
The review is drawn on a range of sources: previous research commissioned by the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework and other RPL stakeholders, relevant academic research, seminars and conferences on RPL, interviews with the main stakeholders, and other information on research, policy and implementation of the RPL in Scotland. The sources used, and referred to in the report, are identified by previous research and by new internet search, and come from work in a number of sectors including Scottish government, qualification authorities, credit rating bodies, further education, adult education (lifelong learning, community education) and higher education, as well as various professional bodies.
