Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that matches the skills and knowledge gained through work, study and life experience against the training that is covered in the Community Pharmacy qualifications or individual units from these qualifications.
As we move through life we gain skills and knowledge in many different ways. Skills can be developed by attending short courses, study or training undertaken on the job. Skills and knowledge can also be gained through work in the pharmacy, another business or voluntary work we undertake in the community.
Guild Training has developed an RPL process which allows the learner to determine the skills and knowledge they already have, match this to the training they are required to complete and gather evidence to demonstrate their skills.The evidence provided by the learner is then assessed by a qualified Guild trainer. Guild trainers have current industry experience which ensures that learners are assessed against industry standards.
