As a result, there is an increasing emphasis on lifelong formal and informal education and training as a critical componentin ensuring a highly skilled workforce that maintains and demonstrates currency of knowledge and skills. In this context, recognising the prior learning of students undertaking vocational education and training (VET) can make a significant contribution to providing the sort of responsive, relevant, and integrated learning necessary for the present and ongoing maintenance of a qualityAustralian workforce.This research uses a case study methodology designed around a series of interviews with key personnel to provide insight into the way eight registered private training providers from across Australiaunderstand, promote, use, support and value processes for the recognition of prior learning (RPL).
