Consultation: Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) (First Consultation)

Now that all the TEIs’ programmes have been approved (some subject to the signing of contracts and the completion of outstanding conditions), we are in a position to issue further guidance on the approval of APL requests for individual students

We have drafted guidance and templates for TEIs to consider individual requests for APL. We would welcome your views on these documents.

We will be issuing additional guidance on AP(E)L shortly.

  • General Advice for TEIs on Individual APL Requests
  • APL Processes for Different Scenarios
  • APL Checklist and Mapping Document for New Students
  • APL Checklist and Mapping Document for Transferring Students
