APEL credits (APELCRD)
|Part of||Entry Profile (EntryProfile)|
|Description||This field records where the credits recorded in EntryProfile.CRDPTSTU are as a result of APEL.|
|Coverage||All EntryProfile entities at providers in England where applicable.|
Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) is the identification, assessment and formal acknowledgment of learning and achievement that occurred prior to entry to a course of study, but not in the context of formal education or training.
Where a provider recognises a students prior experience and as a result the student does not need to complete part of their course, this field is returned to indicate this. This is used in combination of the EntryProfile.CRDPTSTU and EntryProfile.CRDSCM which identify the number of credits that the student is recognised as bringing in and the credit transfer scheme they are applicable to respectively.
A StudentOnModule record should not be returned for APEL modules.
Values should be recorded as positive, whole integers
|Quality Rules||Quality rules to follow|
|Reason required||To be able to distinguish between those students bringing over credits from a previous award and those entering with Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).|
