How to turn your workplace learning into part nationally registered Bachelor of Business Administration degree (BBA)
During your lifetime, you learnt many things and acquired various skills, competencies and experiences. This informal learning is valuable even if it has never been formally assessed. This learning could have taken place at work, during short courses or from community work in a relevant field.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that helps you to make this informal learning visible so that you can use it to either:
- apply for exemption for subjects on the Chartall Business College BBA degree. OR
- apply for access into the degree where you would not normally be permitted access
To qualify for subject exemption, you will be required to show the faculty at Chartall Business College that you have achieved the specified prescribed learning outcomes in the subject curriculum. If you are applying for access, you will be required to show the faculty at Chartall Business College that you have achieved sufficient academic competencies to study at higher education level.
Both types of RPL are easy to access. The Chartall Business College RPL and CAT student guide can be accessed here.
The benefits of applying for RPL for exemption:
- you get recognition for your life’s work; all your learning, experience and insights can be captured and used to shorten the time it takes to complete the BBA degree;
- up to 50% of the BBA subjects can be exempted via RPL, which will shorten the period to graduation;
- it reduces the cost of the degree.
