Recognition of Prior Experience and Learning (RPL)

As part of the Policing Education Qualifications Framework (PEQF) the College of Policing has been working to produce a standardised process for the Recognition of Prior Experience and Learning (RPL). The College has designed matrices for the awarding of academic credits and levels for selected National Policing Curriculum Courses and the learning acquired from the skills and experience gained by officers and staff during their careers.

These matrices along with a standardised initial application form for officers and staff, have been developed following extensive national consultation. The College is developing an online tool to support individuals to identify the typical number of credits that someone with their skills and experience may be able to claim through RPL as they undertake a new course. The online tool will also show a Directory of courses and providers, who have agreed to apply the standardised RPL process and the credits identified in the matrices, together with a standardised initial application form.

An application pack is available for recognised qualification providers to apply to have their courses considered for inclusion in the Directory, together with a supporting rationale as to how the matrices were developed. There are strict criteria for inclusion and these should be read and confirmed before returning any application forms.

The Directory will be made available in October 2017 and further information will be published nearer that time.
