March 15, 2023
LMFM's Gerry Kelly interviewed Dr Philip Scanlon, RPL Project Lead at Dundalk Institute of Technology, and businessman, Mark McGowan, who is studying Tourism & Hospitality at DKIT.
They discussed RPL, the opportunities it offers learners and Mark's own experience using RPL to gain entry to higher education.
RPL is about recognising the prior learning that people have accumulated throughout their life, regardless of where it's been accumulated, whether it's been in a job, or in the community.
Dr Phil O'Leary delivered a masterclass on Mentoring Practice in Munster Technological University.
