It aims to appreciate prior learning irrespective of the medium of achieving it. In short, RPL is a process of assessment of an individuals prior learning to give due importance to learning as an outcome rather than learning as process.
MSDE / NSDC have launched new Avatar of RPL scheme. The objective of this Skill Certification Scheme (RPL) is to enable a large number of Indian youth to get industry-relevant up skilling or skilling within the fold of current engagement which shall help them in securing a better livelihood. Individuals with prior learning experience or skills will be assessed and certified under the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) component of the Scheme.
RPL mainly focuses on the individuals engaged in unregulated sectors. The objectives of RPL are primarily three-fold:
(i) To align the competencies of the un-regulated workforce of the country to the standardized National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF),
(ii) To enhance the career/employability opportunities of an individual as well as provide alternative routes to higher skilling and
(iii) To provide opportunities for reducing inequalities based on privileging certain forms of knowledge over others.
