Recognising learning for credit: Guidelines for the recognition and award of credit for learning

Quality assurance

It is important to protect and maintain confidence in the quality of the delivery and assessment leading to the award of credit on the NZQF.

The TEOs systems, regulations, policies and processes for CRT and RPL are integrated into the academic and other quality management systems.

An equivalent level of scrutiny to all other learner achievement should be applied to decisions relating to the award of credit through CRT and RPL. This includes oversight of assessment, internal and external moderation, review of CRT and RPL.

Review of CRT/RPL policies

CRT and RPL policies should undergo regular internal review as part of organisational self-assessment processes, to ensure they remain fit for purpose and are administered fairly, consistently and rigorously.

CRT and RPL regulations are normally part of programme approval. They will be reviewed by TEOs every year, with a major review every 5 years.

Assessment through CRT/RPL may be a focus area within an external evaluation and review.
