This guide is a compilation of a number of policy and practice documents about recognition of prior learning (RPL). It is intended as a resource for DIT staff who have responsibility for development and management of any aspect of RPL for initial entry to DIT programmes, for advanced entry, for exemption from elements of a programme, or for achievement of a DIT award. It is also intended as a resource for staff who have roles that involve negotiation of RPL with parties external to the DIT such as partnerships, franchise arrangements, progression arrangements, qualifiers, bridging studies, continuing professional development programmes, and access programmes. It may also be useful for staff negotiating syllabi and learning contracts for work-based learning arrangements.
