INDUSTRY LEADING QUALIFICATIONS
All students are offered the opportunity to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
Recognition of Prior Learning is a form of assessment that acknowledges the skills and knowledge you already have. Such skills and knowledge may have been gained through: formal or informal training conducted by industry or education institutions; work experience; life experience.
The main principle underpinning RPL is that for competency-based training the focus should be on the outcomes of learning, rather than how, when or where the learning occurred. In order to grant RPL, the assessor must be confident that the candidate is currently competent against the endorsed industry or enterprise competency standards or outcomes specified in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) accredited courses.
As a form of assessment, RPL uses a process known as competency-based assessment. Please ensure you read and understand how this works and how to have your skills and knowledge recognised.
An RPL Policy and Procedures document and RPL Kit is available if you feel you already hold the skills and knowledge of a particular competency and would like to apply for RPL.
The Policy and Procedures explain what RPL is, the benefits, forms and rules of evidence, the process and how to apply for RPL.
