The extent of implementation of RPL in the further and vocational education and training (FET/VET) sectors varies around the globe. This chapter starts with a review of research and literature pertaining to implementation and demand in selected countries. Some central themes for RPL in FET/VET are highlighted: inclusion and exclusion through RPL; the relation between prior and new learning; and the importance of the candidates’ experiences of RPL. Further, the use of theory in RPL research is exemplified through examples of Honneth’s theory of recognition and Habermas’ theory of communicative action. Literature relating to the development of a more holistic approach to RPL is discussed. Finally, the chapter finally presents some implications for the future development of RPL in FET/VET with ramifications for other sectors.
