Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning: Standardisation Project – NETWORK MEETING

5th July 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Health Education England (HEE) has commissioned Middlesex University in partnership with the Open University (OU), the University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC) and Credit Works to establish standardised approaches for recognising prior learning within the healthcare sector.

The project will capitalise on the changing skills policy landscape to promote career progression opportunities for the sector. The aims are to maximise widening participation, levelling-up, diversity, inclusion and social mobility. Once developed, it will be tested and informed by consultation with higher education providers, employers and other key stakeholders. This will then inform the development of a standardised approach to APEL, reflecting practice in other public sector professions.


1/ Introductions of project and project update, and an overview of milestones and project plan – Professor Darryll Braveboer, Director of Apprenticeships, Professor of Higher Education and Skills at Middlesex University and Clare Dunn, Senior Manager for Recognition of Prior Learning at The Open University

2/ Project background and Evaluation Plan – Professor Finbar Lillis, Research Consultant, Health Education England

3/ Q & A – Team (Darryll Bravenboer, Finbar Lillis, Carole Stott and Clare Dunn)

4/ A warm welcome to Dr Helen Pokorny, Assistant Director of University Campus St Albans (UCSA)  is going to contribute on her research work on credit transfer, recognition and translation.
