RARPA (Recognising and Recording of Progress and Achievement) Toolkit

RARPA is a process to measure the progress and achievement of learners taking part in non-regulated learning provision, i.e. mainly adult and community learning. It is seen as a method of quality assuring learning provision and also as a way of supporting learners to make the transition from non-formal to formal learning. It is used as a mechanism to build confidence and support learners who have few or no qualifications, ideally enabling them to progress to further levels of education which may be qualification-based or support them back into work or society
