What is RPL or RCC?
RPL stands for Recognition of Prior Learning. RCC stands for Recognition of Current Competence. Many experienced workers have gained skills and knowledge on the job but have no qualification to reflect their ability. Under the National Training Framework workers are encouraged to have their skills recognised by having them assessed. The RPL or RCC process involves showing evidence to an assessor of skills or knowledge learnt on the job, in training or previous work or personal/life experience. If the worker can demonstrate their competence, they can be awarded the appropriate qualification or a statement of the skills they have.
