What is an Independent Learning Pathway? 

An Independent Learning Pathway (ILP) is an internationally-recognised, academically-valid way of acknowledging the learning that individuals have gained through their extensive experience. Skilled facilitators help learners explore their own experiential learning, taking a holistic, integrated view of the expected outcomes in the graduate profile of this qualification.   

In the innovative ILP process, learners identify, demonstrate, articulate and reflect upon the understandings and skills they developed through work and other relevant learning experiences. This is an opportunity to explore all aspects of work (paid and unpaid) and shape these into a Practice Framework. Our ILP process provides learners with an opportunity to professionally in competence and confidence. Reflecting upon experience can also offer valuable personal development as well as enabling learners to gain a qualification.
