To all interested business houses and registered Post-School Education and Training providers (Re-advertised)

Vanuatu Qualifications Authority has established and launched the Skills and Qualifications Recognition Services.

VQA will soon start implementing the recognition services with the assistance of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Assessment Centers. Interested registered PSET providers and business houses who apply to become RPL Assessment Centers will have the opportunity to participate on a RPL Capacity Building Workshop in March 2023.

Therefore, VQA is inviting all interested Business Houses and registered Post-School Education and Training (PSET) providers in Vanuatu to apply to become a RPL (Q) Assessment Centre.

A RPL Assessment Centre will be responsible for:
1)     Implementing the policy, procedure, and guidelines of RPL (Q) established by the VQA
2)     To recruit assessors and moderators as per VQA requirements
3)     To ensure RPL (Q) assessments delivery is in compliance with their agreed quality system
4)     Provide resources for effective management of RPL (Q) which include but is not limited to:
a.     Establish a RPL (Q) management committee
b.     Appoint a RPL (Q) coordinator
c.      Provide necessary facilities, equipment and other resources to facilitate implementation of RPL (Q)
d.     Manage RPL (Q) learners’ record.

Assessment centers will benefit from RPL by
a)     Widening access to a broader range of skilled (employed or unemployed) individuals;
b)     Supporting individuals in their career pathway;
c)     Supporting partnerships with employers from public and private sector;
d)     Providing more alternatives and flexibles entry routes to labour market; and
e)     Supporting career development planning and employability skills.
