Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

The assessment of current competence/ recognition of prior learning (RPL)

Moonstone Business School of Excellence (Pty) Ltd has procedures for assessing and recognising prior learning. This includes procedures for the selection of potential RPL candidates, personnel and structures to support them through the RPL process.

The RPL process involves the identification, documentation, assessment, evaluation and transcription of prior learning against specified learning outcomes, so that such learning can articulate with admissions requirements to target programmes and be recognised for entry, exemption or accreditation purposes.

The assessment instruments developed for RPL are designed and implemented in accordance with Moonstone Business School of Excellence (Pty) Ltd policies on fair and transparent assessment.

RPL for Further Education Qualifications

  • An analysis will be done on credits obtained towards approved Further Education qualifications at NQF Level 4 & 5.
