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.
