For further details:


Congratulations to our RPEL graduates!
They have got their skills, knowledge and experience converted to an internationally accredited Level 4 Diploma from the Great Britain College Consortium in 2 months.

The graduates didn’t have to attend additional trainings or sit for any examinations. All they did was have their unrecognised skills & competencies assessed and to build a portfolio of evidences to be granted a formal qualification. That’s how the Recognition of Prior Experiential Learning (RPEL) scheme works.

We have 1,500 Assessors nationwide. Those with a minimum of 5 years supervisory experience with 2 staffs can be assessed anywhere within Malaysia.


What is RPEL?

RPEL is a scheme whereby adults can have all of their previous learning recognised. All prior learning are recognised, regardless of how it was obtained – it could be formal (training course), informal (workplace) or non-formal (everyday life) because no one should have to spend time and resources learning again what they already know and can do. 


Advantages of RPEL

  • You will have your skills recognized with a qualification
  • You don’t have to waste time studying something you already know you can do
  • You may have increased career opportunities by holding a qualification
  • You could open up more career pathways

For Employers:
