Revised RPL Framework for Scottish Higher Education published

Date: November 29 - 2022

In session 2021-22, as part of our Enhancement Themes project Valuing and Recognising Prior Learning and Experience, we brought together an expert group to review and update the RPL National Framework for Scottish Higher Education.

We are delighted to announce that the revised Framework has now been published and is available at both of the pages above.

The underpinning work for the original Framework included the development of a set of RPL principles for HEIs, based on review of RPL practice across the UK and internationally. These principles have been substantially retained, with only minor adaptations, to make them applicable to a tertiary sector and with an enhanced focus on employers and professional bodies.
