The Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a new approach, which is being introduced in Pakistan to recognize and certify the competence and skills of millions of skilled unrecognized workers coming out of informal TVET sector known as Ustad-Shagrid system. This approach will enable the skilled workers to get their skills recognized and subsequently they will have access to better job opportunities and further education. In technical terms-RPL- refers to a process that examines evidence of past learning and experience.
For this, the Programme aims to build the capacity of the relevant actors, in particular, the Qualification Awarding Bodies and the TVET institutes and enterprises to support assessment and certification in line with the National Vocational Qualifications Framework (NVQF).
