Recognised Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process of identifying your knowledge and skills against a qualification or part thereof. The process involves the identification, mediation, assessment and acknowledgement of knowledge and skills obtained through informal, non-formal and/ or formal learning.

It is concept of recognising and accrediting — what people already know and can do — is having a significant impact on many of the education and training programmes currently being developed. This is irrespective of whether that learning has been acquired through unstructured learning, performance development, off-the-job assessment, or skills and knowledge that meet workplace needs but have been gained through various previous learning experiences.

It is type of skills assessment process allowing new and current students to achieve all, or part, of a nationally recognised qualification by demonstrating their knowledge, skills and experience around a particular topic.

Some of the major advantages of RPL are

PYRAMID STRUCTURE- Roles and responsibilities of different levels

PYRAMID STRUCTURE- Roles and responsibilities of different levelsRole of NSDC

Funding and incentivising: This is a key role. This involves providing financing either as loans or equity, providing grants and supporting financial incentives to select private sector initiatives to improve financial viability through tax breaks, etc. The exact nature of funding (equity, loan and grant) will depend on the viability or attractiveness of the segment and, to some extent, the type of player (for-profit private, non-profit industry association or non-profit NGO). Over time, the NSDC aspires to create strong viable business models and reduce its grant-making role

Enabling support services: A skills development institute requires a number of inputs or support services such as curriculum, faculty and their training, standards and quality assurance, technology platforms, student placement mechanisms and so on. The NSDC plays a significant enabling role in some of these support services, most importantly and in the near-term, setting up standards and accreditation systems in partnership with industry associations

Shaping/creating: In the near-term, the NSDC will proactively seed and provide momentum for large-scale participation by private players in skill development. NSDC will identify critical skill groups, develop models for skill development and attract potential private players and provide support to these efforts.

Skill Ecosystem

In Skill Development Govt is First Time trying to create a ECO system which will compete with the formal educational structure at the same time provide opportunity for a career. Lets compare two career path…. One person from a middle class family completes his/her 12th class from a CBSE school and his family takes loan for his engineering education from a pvt college. After Btech he/she does not get a job from campus After spending 8-10 lac and 4 precious year outcome is zero ………….Another situation when a Poor family student completes 12th from govt school and he does not know what to do… with the govt funding he completes 2 month program in electrician and start a job at Rs. 6000 … slowly he joined other higher level skill program with his job and in next 4-5 years he completes his Credit Based Degree in Electrician and earning 15-18k per month…. He is Skilled and Have a Degree…………… This is the way forward……….

With this Eco system this person can also go for Master in Electrician, even Phd in Electrician and can proud on the work he/she does.

.In India Technically Education Business is a Not For Profit business but in Reality Education is Real Estate Business and Despite spending lacs of rupees student gets nothing concrete….yes there are big universities which are creating Manpower for service sector and claiming 1000-5000 placement in a year… but they are the again destroying the entire ecosystem..They are preparing Robots who are good for nothing…

Skill Eco System is providing opportunity for small entrepreneur to come forward and give their life in the progress of nation.

I am very hopeful from the schemes of current govt, and invite all t people connected in my network to come and create a big team to contribute in Skill Mission of India… with DrAkansha Jain at EFOS Skill Academy
