Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), formally recognises a person’s existing skills and knowledge towards the achievement of a nationally recognised qualification or statement of attainment.
Skills may have been gained through:
Each qualification is made up of units of study. To gain RPL, you will need to demonstrate that you have the required skills and knowledge to meet the competencies of the unit.
RPL uses a straightforward yet robust assessment process meaning:
Fees for RPL will be charged by course unit/module based on the amount per scheduled hour.
Students who meet the eligibility criteria will pay fees according to the standard and concession hourly rates set each year. Students who do not meet the eligibility criteria will pay a fee for service rate per hour. This rate is set per course.
You can enquire about skills recognition prior to enrolment or at any time during your studies via your teacher or the Customer Service Centre on 5225 0800.
A detailed overview of the RPL process is available here.
If you are applying the necessary skills and knowledge in your current (or recent) job, then don’t underestimate your skills – consider getting them recognised!
