ACCREDITATION OF CAREER PROGRESS DEVELOPMENT (ACPD)

Adults who seek an opportunity to enhance their career prospects can apply to come under the Accreditation of Career Progress Development (ACPD) scheme. ACPD could support your personal and professional development. The ACPD scheme is an alternative towards the path for non-academic person to acquire an award from a Professional Body to uplift their image to a professional status. This scheme would be very suitable for busy working professionals who have an abundance of work based knowledge, skill and capability. All candidates will be scrutinised to show whether they possess evidence of this attainment/quality, before being considered to come under this specific scheme in order to gain the UK-CCL’s certifications.

Thus, high calibre and dynamic candidates, who have acquired and developed their skills through career progress development programmes, would be able to gain the UK-CCL’s professional award for career progress or business development. In addition to the vast knowledge and expertise that they already possess, candidates would be required to submit a Project Paper in their area of work and expertise, to gain the UK-CCL’s worthy recommendation to gain the internationally accepted Professional Knowledge Qualifications.

AFFIRMATION FOR PRIOR EXPERIENCE & LEARNING (ACPD)


Lifelong Learning and Continuing Professional Development is two main phrases that are used to emphasise the changes taking place in the educational and training area in the twenty first century. An adult who wants a second chance; those who are returning to professional education after a career break or those who want to improve their career prospects can apply through the Affirmation for Prior Experience & Learning (APEL) scheme. At whatever stage one is in, the APEL path would support personal and professional development. APEL encourages:

  • a. Learning from experience; growing with one’s company/organisation’s progress.

  • b. Developing one’s profession in learning while earning.

  • c. Changing directions and having a breakthrough into a new career with the latest technology.

But, their hands on experiences and knowledge that they have gained in their working life will have assisted them. In order to appreciate and reward them, APEL scheme is there as their Career Path Professional Development.
