Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Programmes

Kenya Coast National Polytechnic is now mandated by The Government through Kenya National Qualification Authority (KNQA) to implement Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL, a process that involves identifying, assessing and certifying knowledge, skills and competencies acquired in non-formal or informal learning.

This is meant to help many Kenyans acquire formal qualification that matches their knowledge and skills, thus help them access employment, enhance labour mobility as well as promote lifelong learning, social inclusion and self-esteem.

This process is in line with the Government’s commitment to provide a platform for recognition and certification of a huge segment of its population majorly the youth, who have acquired various competencies through experience and have been contributing greatly to the country’s economy through the informal sector popularly known as Jua Kali.
