Abstract

This report describes the findings from a study designed to test out an application of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for young people from a looked-after background. The potential advantages of RPL profiling could have positive effects on the educational outcomes of the looked-after child. Many looked-after children leave school with few or no formal qualifications, but these same young people often have full and varied life experiences. These experiences may have led to a set of wider achievements that could be recognised by the RPL process. The study was commissioned by Education Scotland, and included a pilot project and a research evaluation. The work was carried out by the Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland (CELCIS) between January and June 2012, with additional expertise and training provided by the Learning Enhancement and Academic Development (LEAD) team at Glasgow Caledonian University.
