Recognition of prior learning

The Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (the College) supports and recognizes learning which takes place in different contexts. Knowledge and skills can develop from many types of formal, non-formal and informal learning. The College recognizes that current and prospective students may acquire learning and skills in a formal learning environment, in employment or in other working/voluntary contexts. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) at MCAST considers both the recognition of prior certified learning (RPCL) and recognition of prior experiential learning (RPEL).A separate process is adopted for each type respectively. The responsibility for the effective implementation of the RPL policy lies with the admissions board, operating under the auspices of the Office of the Registrar. Students seeking to make use of this policy can be assisted by the respective MCAST institute, and by the student support services as necessary.

Values 4.0

Values 4.0 is an educational proposal that combines learning and community service processes in a single well-articulated project where participants learn by working on real needs of the environment in order to improve it.
In short, it is a method to combine social commitment with the learning of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values. Learn to be competent by being useful to others.
Despite its simplicity, it is powerful, because although it is a learning methodology, it is not only that. It is also a philosophy that reconciles the cognitive dimension and the ethical dimension of the person; a pedagogy that reconciles educational quality and social inclusion and a community development strategy because it fosters the social capital of populations.
