RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)

You've worked hard in the past career and have learnt new skills along the way.
Make that experience work for you!

Everything you have done till now, has gained you the knowledge, skills and experience in the workplace. Make that experience work for you!

Are you seeking to transition from your current employment to another? Or transitioning from Law Enforcement, Corrections or Defence?

Understanding what employers are looking for in employee can be daunting at best. Knowing how to align your experiences, and what you have learned along the way, is what we do best.

Applying for a job with formal qualifications rather than just your practical experience gives potential employers’ confidence in your skill and knowledge level and ensures that employers maintain Legal compliance. In fact, in many cases you may be completely overlooked if you can’t show national qualifications.

Recognition of prior learning is suitable for Defence, Police, Corrections, Security, Mining, Construction, Private Sector, Small business

Being awarded nationally recognised qualifications through RPL shows employers what you know, and gives you the confidence to take a step up to the next level of performance.

Recognition of prior learning is for you, if you want to:

  • Secure a new job or internal promotion,
  • Change industries or professions,
  • Increase your career security,
  • Apply for a pay rise,
  • Re-enter the workforce,
  • Gain credit towards further study, or
  • Meet industry compliance requirements.

Recognition of prior learning is an assessment process that assesses an individual’s formal and informal learning to determine whether your skills, knowledge and experience can be converted into nationally recognised qualifications.

Being awarded qualifications through RPL means that you may not have to study what you already know or do and eliminates the need to attend classes.

Your evidence of skills and knowledge will be assessed against the qualification competencies and the current Industry standard or practices. Where a skills or knowledge gap exists, you will undertake assessment of that competency gap only.

Assessment for RPL requires that your skills and knowledge must be:

  • Valid – it must cover the broad range of required knowledge and skills;
  • Reliable – the evidence must be authentic, i.e. the trainee’s own work;
  • Current and transferable – the skills once obtained must not have been affected by lack of practice, or changes in technology; and
  • Sufficient – the evidence must be sufficient to demonstrate full competence in the particular area of work; and
  • Within the last three (3) years.
