RPL & Skills Recognition
Location: Australia Wide

Candidates often commence courses and modules with existing knowledge, skills, and experience that are relevant to their field of study. These attributes may have been gained in educational or practical settings (paid or voluntary) both in Australia or overseas. For example, if you have previously worked in an office, you may have gained some skills that can be recognised toward a business administration qualification. Likewise, if you have spent time helping out at a tuition centre for underpriviledged children, you may have some experience that is relevant to a teaching certification.

Essentially, RPL may mean that you do not have to complete all the units in a given course of study to attain the full qualification.

Who Can Apply for the RPL Process?

Anyone who has previous knowledge, experience, or skills that are relevant to the course of study that they want to complete can apply for RPL, regardless of whether your training or experience was in Australia or abroad. To be successful, you need to be able to provide evidence of the skills and knowledge you have gained.

Process

1. FREE SKILLS ASSESSMENT

You need to have valid industry experience in order to qualify for this RPL program. When you first touch base, we will help you identify your skills and advise on whether this qualification is right for you. As a rule of thumb if you have more than 2 years experience in your field, then you are likely to be eligible.

2. EVIDENCE PORTFOLIO
  • Valid Identification
  • Resume: We need your resume showing details of your work history, job description including your duties and places you worked in.
  • List showing relevant employment history
  • Letter of employment
  • Reference letters: get a reference letter from your current & past employers detailing your job title, your duties, how long you worked there and any special skills you have. Reference letters should show approximately four (4) years experience (in total).
  • Certificates/ transcripts from formal training
  • Work samples/change plans
  • Supervisor’s reports
  • Customer/client feedback
  • Position description
  • Response to questions/interview
  • Other evidence: it’s a good idea to include any other documents as evidence.
3. SKILLS CHECK
  1. You will be having a conversation covering questions for each unit with our qualified assessor
  2. The assessor may choose to also perform a practical observation.
  3. Where gap training is required, you will need to complete theory or practical assessments as required. Theory components can be completed from home and practical components can be completed at your work site.
4. QUALIFIED!

Upon successful completion of all units within the qualification, you’ll be issued with a Nationally Recognised Qualification.

Alternatively, a Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment will be issued if you do not meet the full qualification criteria.
