Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

In the absence of recognized qualifications, a large proportion of people face severe disadvantages in getting decent jobs, migrating to other regions and accessing further education, even though they might have the necessary knowledge and skills. The RPL process can help these individuals acquire a formal qualification that matches their knowledge and skills, and thereby contribute to improving their employability, mobility, lifelong learning, social inclusion and self-esteem.
This increased prospect for inclusion in the labour market is a win-win situation for all as employers are likewise able to access proof of skilled personnel and better match them with suitable jobs, while also increasing productivity. And governments are further able to have better assurances of increased competitiveness and economic growth, as well as social inclusion and equity.
With an increasing recognition of the learning acquired through formal, non-formal and informal means, TTB awards qualifications through NVQF, RPL assessment and S-II qualifications for the trades in which NVQF Qualifications are not yet available.
