RPL Pathways

RPL is an assessment-only process that is designed for those who possess substantial existing skills and knowledge in a specific industry. It allows people to demonstrate their competence in these skills without first having to be trained. Our RPL kit is based on a combination of evidence submission and a competency interview conducted via phone. 

This is a great option if you can provide evidence that you have prior skills, knowledge and experience in leading or managing VET-sector activities and/or designing and developing VET-sector resources such as learning strategies and assessment tools. Click here to view the types of evidence you will be required to provide. 

All RPL candidates must be deemed eligible to undertake RPL prior to enrolling.
