BENCHMARK CONCEPT IN COMPLIANCE WITH UK-CCL PQMS 5001:2005


This concept was developed to assist awarding institutions or business / training organisations to enhance and implement Professional Knowledge Quality Management Standards Worldwide. This vision would also assist in the design and development of work orientated knowledge learning plans in various disciplines and endorsed as a professional knowledge qualification. Professional Knowledge Qualification Programmes are intangible packs developed to satisfy the training needs and demand of skills development in the various geographical locations of the world. When a candidate transfers from one Qualification to another to continue further professional education, they should not waste their time in repeating the same learning modules. In order to introduce suitable exemptions, UK-CCL provides benchmark services that are beneficial to the candidates in person to acquire the necessary Credit Units. This is carried out by Credit Accumulation Transfer Scheme (CATS).

Benchmarking matches and identifies the similarities and differences between the various learning plans and methods of delivery. Particular attention is given to the identification of the distinctive features of the subjects by setting these within the overall context of the learning programmes and awards of the Universities or Professional Bodies. It is recognised that each module is often set in a narrow context and UK-CCL PQMS will seek to broaden the context by relating learning modules in different disciplines where similar subjects are taught but under different cloaking terminology.

Professional Knowledge Learning Benchmark


UK-CCL has developed a process that helps candidates to put together a claim for entry or credit by matching their current and prior learning against the specific requirements of a particular award. Universities and Professional Bodies who have cordial relationship with UK-CCL in making use of the Affirmation of Prior Experience & Learning (APEL) and Accreditation for Career Progress Development (ACPD) schemes to evaluate skills, knowledge, and experiences of a busy working professional for their respective awards. These schemes operate on the concept which recognise

  • Learning from experience; growing with one’s own company’s progress.
  • Developing one’s profession in learning while earning.
  • Changing direction and breaking through into a new career with the latest technology.

The Affirmation of Prior Experience & Learning (APEL) and Accreditation for Career Progress Development (ACPD) schemes are designed to Recognise skills, Reflect on learning from paid and voluntary work, Review whether learning matches against entry criteria or the requirements of modules within specific LEARNINGs and Prepare a claim for entry or credit.
