About the Project
This innovative and ambitious collaboration between the Institutes of Technology, the Universities and TU Dublin seeks to build a consistent and coherent approach to RPL within and across the 19 publicly funded higher education institutions. Funded under the Irish Government’s Human Capital Initiative (HCI) Pillar 3 (Innovation and Agility), the project will see the HEIs engineer a significant shift in RPL policy, procedure and practice, that has transformative potential for Ireland’s education system to become an international leader in the field. The project will play a crucial role in delivering on a range of national and European policy objectives in lifelong learning and meeting skills needs.
The National Recognition of Prior Learning in Higher Education Project is a four-year collaboration sponsored by the Technological Higher Education Association and the Irish Universities Association, which works across all 19 publicly-funded higher education institutions (HEIs). The project seeks to enable the higher education system to respond rapidly to changes in both skills requirements and technology.
