accreditation of prior learning

accreditation of prior learning

the award of credit for a course of study or TRAINING previously undertaken to give exemption from some part of an educational or training course currently being taken. It facilitates greater flexibility in the provision of training and education, and is therefore thought likely to encourage take-up of vocational training and education. Accreditation of prior learning is likely to be facilitated by the attempts to set national standards of training and education in the NATIONAL VOCATIONAL QUALIFICATION initiative.
