APEL for Credit Award [APEL.C] is the award of credits for prior experiential learning towards a course in an accredited programme of a higher education provider (HEP). Prior experiential learning is learning based on experience. It includes all learning which you have done up to this point which has not already been formally assessed.

These can be:

  • life and work experiences (paid and voluntary)
  • prior learning gained through community-based learning
  • workplace learning and training
  • continuing professional development
  • independent learning
