Benefits of Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL)

Although, claiming credit from prior experiences and qualifications can sometimes be a time consuming process there are definite advantages and benefits, for example:

  • your previous experience will be recognised and valued;
  • you may be able to get onto a course without formal qualifications;
  • it may shorten the time required to complete a course;
  • previous learning may not have to be repeated;
  • it may reduce your workload;
  • gaining exemption from modules or part of a course may save you money;
  • it can build self-confidence;
  • it can support career aspirations;
  • it can help towards gaining a new qualification.
