Brief on objective of this RFP:

  • Individuals with prior learning experience or skills shall be assessed and certified under the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) component of the Scheme. RPL aims to align the competencies of the unregulated workforce of the country to the NSQF. Facilitator agency registered under NSDC, shall be incentivized to implement RPL projects in Types I. To address knowledge gaps, facilitator agency may offer Bridge Courses and orientation course to RPL candidates.
  • Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process of recognizing previous learning, often experiential, towards gaining a qualification. RPL majorly, not mandatorily, focuses on the individuals engaged in unorganized jobs like Construction Workers/Labourers, Agricultural Labour, etc.

The objectives of RPL are primarily three-fold:

  • To align the competencies of the un-regulated workforce of the country to the standardized National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF)
