Recognition of Prior Learning Digital Badge is Back


The Recognition of Prior Learning Digital Badge is Back!

Following from hugely successful participation and delivery last year, the RPL Digital Badge, in partnership with the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education is back offering participants an excellent introduction to all things RPL.

Start Date: April 2024
There is no charge to participate.


Who should complete the RPL Digital Badge?

The RPL Digital Badge helps staff in the tertiary sector learn about RPL and how it applies to their own work, both at their institution and within the broader education sector.

The 6-week course is available to all staff currently working in tertiary education in the Republic of Ireland. Participants from other sectors and those with an interest in RPL are also welcome.


Additional facilitator training is included so that you can become a facilitator of this course and run it in your own institution.

Course Programme and Dates

Commencing 10th April 2024. Running over 8 weeks.
Webinars (90 mins) will take place every Wednesday morning. See further guidance information below. There are 25 learner effort hours required for the successful completion of this badge which can be broken down as follows:

  • Live Webinars every Wednesday from 9:30 – 11:00am
  • Peer Triad Participation for one hour per week (6 hours)
  • Self-directed learning through the engagement with the course materials, completion of associated activities and the production of a Journal of Reflection (10 hours).

*An additional five learner hours are required for the facilitator add-on (optional), in addition to attendance at two extra webinars over 2 weeks. Find out more...
