Accreditation Of Prior Experiential
Learning For Credit Award
APEL (C) is defined by the Malaysian Qualification Agency as the ‘award of credits for the prior experiential learning towards a subject in an accredited programme’ (GGP APEL-C). Thus, APEL (C) recognises a learner’s prior experiential learning that is acquired through informal or non-formal learning, thereby offering an opportunity for accelerated progression within the program enrolled. The accelerated progression is possible as the learner can potentially avoid duplicating his learning by obtaining credit transfer for subjects, the learning outcomes of which have already been achieved by the learner through prior experiential learning.
