Participants undertaking NCAS training programs are able to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL will be granted when all the stated learning outcomes and performance criteria of the specific training program have been met.
What is RPL?
- RPL is based on the awareness that people learn in many different ways throughout their lifetime – through work experience and life experience as well as through education and training. RPL takes into account a person’s skills and experiences, no matter where these were learnt, to enable people to gain credit in a course of study.
- The process of RPL must be quality controlled and delivered by personnel with experience in the sport and in coach education. These personnel are responsible for ensuring that:
- procedures are fair and equitable
- measures are valid and reliable.
