Where are you in your journey towards continuous improvement in RPL practice in the five key areas?


There are many helpful tools and resources (process guides, skills inventories, course requirements, competency profiles) used in quality RPL programs and services.


Key system components help to ensure quality RPL services, from professional development for advisors and assessors to policies, communication strategies and organizational support.


The purpose of an assessment strategy and the nature of evaluation tools (skills demonstrations, structured interviews, challenge exams, simulations, portfolios) vary from organization to organization. Each has its own strengths, limitations and potential applications.

Advising/career counselling

From intake to exit, advisors and career development practitioners need multiple strategies and effective techniques to support learners/candidates/clients/employees through the RPL process.

Public Policy

There are policy implications for the recognition of learning at the organizational, community, provincial/territorial and national levels. Supportive RPL policies lead to better outcomes for all labour market partners in Canada.

These areas of practice are

  • client-centered and interconnected
  • flexible and adaptable to meet the needs of the client, the organization, the community and the country
  • vital for a robust workforce that is dependent upon the skills and competencies of job seekers, adult learners and those requiring certification
