If It Ain't Broke...
Adults Learning, v19 n8 p23 Apr 2008
RARPA, recognising and recording progress and achievement in non-accredited learning, is a wonder tool that enthuses learners, providers, inspectors and policy makers alike. The staged process or anything one wants to call it, has made a positive contribution to the work with learners who have complex learning difficulties and disabilities. There can be no question of the positive impact RARPA had. In this article, the author argues why get rid of this approach that has worked so well and benefit so many.
