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. Recognising a candidates’ prior learning involves giving them recognition towards a vocational qualification for the formal and informal learning experiences they have previously completed. For example, if you have previously worked in an office, you may have gained some skills that can be used as recognition 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 relevance to a teaching certification.
Essentially, RPL may mean that you do not have to complete all the modules, maybe none of them, 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.
