based on experience in a subject area, but students also need to show awareness
of the theory within the area of study. The learning outcomes are listed on the
relevant subject page on the Alphacrucis College (AC) website.
 
Students then need to provide evidence to support their application and
demonstrate how they have met each learning outcome of the particular subject.
Appropriate types of evidence are listed in the RPL Policy, and may include a
portfolio with examples of previous work, references from employers with detailed
description of applicant skills and responsibilities, study transcripts, a reflective
essay, or a combination of these methods. This is not an exhaustive list and
students may include other evidence that supports their application.
