B. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) cross credited to a Careerforce programme
Where the learner has a qualification (or assessed courses) that they have achieved previously (either in New Zealand or overseas) and that they believe could be cross credited against a Careerforce programme, they can apply for RPL. The prior learning has to be awarded within the past 12 years for it to be considered.
The learner should apply to Careerforce using the Recognition of Prior Learning form. If the application is successful Careerforce will register the achievement of the unit standard(s) with NZQA and it will appear on the learner’s Record of Achievement.
To apply for RPL the applicant needs to:
•believe the prior learning will lead to or is equivalent to a Careerforce programme
•state the Careerforce programme on the application form
•complete all sections of the application form
•attach identification documents
•attach course descriptors and evidence of achievement
