Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Please click on tabs above for information pertaining to RPL for TAE and WHS and see below for general information

RPL is a formal process where a candidate’s existing skills and knowledge are assessed for recognition towards achievement of a unit of competency or qualification. These skills and knowledge may have been gained through work experience, education, training and/or life experience.

Despite widespread belief, RPL is not an easy route. The evidentiary requirements for RPL are extensive. Candidates should be warned that this can be a very long process which often depends on the candidate’s ability to clearly present an extensive amount of work‐based and other evidence. In addition, the candidate needs to be prepared to participate in a series of comprehensive competency conversations. An RPL assessor will look through a candidate's evidence however it is the candidate's responsibility to collect and to present the evidence cohesively. Candidates should be aware that if they fail to produce the required evidence, they will need to undertake gap assessments and in some cases may be required to film themselves exhibiting a skill that they have not been able to demonstrate through their RPL evidence.
