Recognition of Prior Learning and Looked After Young People: Briefing RB-2012-02

Alison Hennessy, Graham Connelly

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

This research briefing describes the findings from a research pilot designed to test out an application of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for young people from a looked-after background. RPL is a profiling process, which may be used to benchmark skills developed in informal settings against academic qualifications. Professionals from a variety of backgrounds within children's services undertook multi-agency RPL advisor training. They learned to benchmark experiences and skills gained in the wider community with the equivalent SCQF level and Curriculum for Excellence 'experiences and outcomes', and went on to carry out profiling with young people. Eight advisors and eight young people completed the research evaluation.
