The ARPEL4Entrep project – Accreditation & Recognition of Prior Experience & Learning for Entrepreneurship – will be developing a programme encouraging entrepreneurs to accredit and recognise their prior experience and learning as part of a Bachelors degree in Entrepreneurship.
The project thus intends to highlight and recognise the competences entrepreneurs acquire throughout their experience, therefore encouraging them to pursue higher education.
The ARPEL programme will provide a structured manner in which RPL and VPL frameworks can be integrated with innovative online coursework including game-based learning to enable participants to earn the required 180 ECTS credits at Level 6.
It will be piloted over a twenty-month period starting in October 2021. This piloting phase will be closely monitored to allow any necessary modification to ensure the effectiveness of the Programme.
