What is a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?
RPL is the acknowledgement of skills and knowledge achieved outside the formal education and training system, including work and life experience.
RPL recognises any prior knowledge and experience and measures it against the qualification in which candidates are enrolled. The individual may not need to complete all of a training program if he or she already possesses some of the competencies taught in the program.

To apply for this VTCT Level 3 RPL, you will need to demonstrate a minimum of 3 years current full-time industry experience.

VTCT Level 3 Qualification Description
This qualification reflects the role of barbers who use a range of well-developed sales, consultation, and technical skills and knowledge to provide a broad range of barbering services to clients. They use discretion and judgement to provide client services and take responsibility for the outcomes of their own work. This qualification provides a pathway to work as a barber in any industry environment, usually a barbershop or salon.

How is it Assessed?
It is important that you understand the following terms and conditions to assist you with your RPL application.
Competence is the demonstration of skills and knowledge that you have gained through life and work experiences as well as any training that you have successfully completed that can be matched against a set of industry performance standards laid down by the VTCT and referred to as units grouped together to form a specific industry qualification.
Each unit of competency is divided into elements (a set of activities that lead to an overall achievement or demonstration of competence). Each of these elements is further broken down into a set of performance criteria which give a more detailed description of the skills and knowledge you need to be able to demonstrate.
Matching your evidence against each of the elements/performance criteria will help you to reach your qualification more quickly.

Once the RPL assessment process has commenced, no skill gap training can be provided to candidates.
If skill gaps are identified, the candidate will need to enter into an upskill process with their employer to complete the units of competence that have been assessed as ‘not competent’.
