Terms of reference

The Network’s Terms of Reference are to:

  • Promote and inform the effective use and practice of RPL across participating countries
  • Provide a means for member countries to share and learn from policies and practice across Europe in relation to RPL development
  • Build links between European countries at various stages in RPL development.

Operation and meetings

Meetings of a Steering Group constitute the formal mechanism for planning the activities of the network, whereas meetings that involve the whole Network focus on sharing practice. The Network is also actively seeking links to other projects and initiatives of interest pan-Europe and within member countries to maximise benefit/information exchange for members and beyond.
