How can my Policing experience help me get a qualification?

The RPL process recognises that the skills and knowledge you have gained during your career in policing are very similar to those gained through academic study.

These skills and knowledge have been assessed against academic standards to work out how many academic credits they could be given.

A credit estimator has been designed so you can work out how many credits you might be able to claim. These credits may then be ‘cashed in’ against some academic courses.

This could allow you to start an academic course part way through, and you may not have to complete certain credit bearing modules.
