Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

LTT - PencilWhat boxes do I have to tick?

Before you are accepted onto any 3rd Level programme you are obliged to meet certain learning requirements. These can specify that you must have a particular qualification or have reached a specific level of education in a precise field of study. The EQUAL Ireland approach broadens the required learning requirements to include your work and life experience, where these are relevant to the programme you wish to enter. We have a paper based system which allows you to set out your relevant work and life experience. You will be given support and advice while completing the process. The result is then considered and assessed by the Programme organisers (EQUAL Ireland and AIT) to determine whether or not you meet the requirements and where not to identify what you need to do to rectify matters. It is a friendly accessible process. AIT are the final arbiters with regard to programme entry.

LTT - MoneyHow much will it cost?

The cost to you depends on your circumstances. If you are unemployed or employed in the private sector there may be funding available. Best advice is to come along to an  EQUAL Ireland Information Session and we will try to sort it out there. Even if you do have to pay yourself we have a staggered payment system to take the immediate pain out of paying.  Don’t let money stop you coming to at least the Information Session
