Additional Information:

Please see below additional information (1) Recognition of Prior Learning and (2) England Higher Education Qualification Framework.

1. Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a method of assessment (leading to the award of credit) that considers whether learners can demonstrate that they can meet the assessment requirements for a unit through knowledge, understanding or skills they already possess and so not need to develop through a course of learning.

The College recognises the RPL enables recognition of achievement from a range of activities using any appropriate methodology. Provided that the assessment requirements of a given unit or qualification have been met, the use of RPL is acceptable for accrediting a unit or a whole qualification. Evidence of learning must be valid and reliable.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Form can be requested at admission@severnbusinesscollege.com
