Recognition of Prior Learning

Beautiko College recognises prior learning in accordance with the institutions policy. 

The structure of this Unit Standard based Qualification makes provision for the Recognition of Prior Learning possible in that it can be achieve in whole or in part, if the learner is able to demonstrate competence in the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes implicit in the Beauty and Nail Technology or any other qualification approved for.


Recognition of Prior Learning will be done by means of Integrated Assessment of the specific outcomes of the associated unit standards and of the Exit Level Outcomes of the qualification.

All Recognition of Prior Learning is subject to quality assurance by the relevant accredited Education and Training Quality Assurance Body and is conducted by a registered assessor.

All candidates wishing to enter into any section of the training programme will be given the opportunity to provide evidence of prior learning. This will take place in the form of a theoretical and practical evaluation. If the desired outcome and standard has been reached as set out by the institution, credits will be given for that specific unit or credits towards a complete qualification.


Accumulation of Credits (CAT)

Credit accumulation and transfer (CAT) is the process whereby a student’s achievements are recognised and contribute to further learning. The CAT scheme allow credits for incomplete qualifications or the same or different qualifications from the same or a different institution thus meeting part of the requirements must be recognised and to either allow mobility and flexibility between programmes or units. 

The bridging or GAP and RPL assessment will be done at an additional cost to the learner and the cost will be established once a complete evaluation has been done for units or part qualifications.
