A Measure of Success
Walter, Charmian
Adults Learning, v18 n8 p26-27 Apr 2007
Drawing on her experience with County Durham Learning and subsequently as a Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement in Non-Accredited Learning (RARPA) Champion for the Learning and Skills Council and as a trainer for the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE) and the Learning and Skills Network, the author outlines the value of the five-stage RARPA process as a way of promoting learning that is co-managed by both tutor and learner. The RARPA approach applies a staged process to recognising and recording progress and achievement in work-based learning or literacy, language and numeracy. It provides a systematic approach to ensure that the learner is at the centre of learning and the learner's goals are recognised and count towards the success of their learning within RARPA. There are two interlinked processes: systematic recognition and recording of progress and achievement through a staged process; and quality assurance of learning through the RARPA process.
