Accreditation of Prior Learning
Most practitioners have a wealth of experience and may have undertaken short courses or modules of study as part of their continuing professional development.
Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) is a process that enables you to gain credits for this learning which may count towards your academic studies.
Each applicant is considered on an individual basis.
There are two ways of achieving APL:
Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL)
This process enables you to transfer of credits from another University into your Award at De Montfort University. The credits need to be relevant to your programme of study and must not have already been used as part of an exit Award for a previous degree. You will need to demonstrate that the knowledge is still current.
Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL)
This process enables you to get accreditation where learning, that is achieved outside of formal education or training systems, is assessed and if appropriate recognised for academic purposes.
For example, someone may have undertaken a non level 6 course (e.g. City & Guilds 730 teaching) but has subsequently built up their knowledge on this subject area following the course through experience, additional study sessions and personal reading and reflection, enabling them to put together a portfolio of evidence for assessment against a level 6 teaching module that is currently being delivered within the School.
If you think you have a case/credits that could be used for Accreditation of Prior Learning then please make an appointment via email only to see Deborah Dowsett, Programme Leader, and APL Lead for Post Registration
Booking is by appointment only, and APL Surgeries are usually held on the last Friday of every month.
