Recognition of Prior Learning

RPL is one of a number of processes for establishing credit or advanced standing. RPL broadens access into formal learning by enabling credit to be given for student achievement though other formal, non-formal or informal learning. At Central Regional TAFE Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) acknowledges your formal and informal learning gained through:

  • Previous training and education.
  • Past and current work experience.
  • Life experience.

The RPL process will involve validation of your existing skills and knowledge. Through this process you will be able to obtain credits in a course and, in some cases, a full qualification.
Central Regional TAFE assessors can review a range of evidence such as existing academic records, proof of training course/workshop attendance, written support by previous employers and by viewing procedures and processes undertaken in your workplace.


Why gain RPL?

  • It can assist you in gaining entry into higher levels of study and training.
  • You can obtain/complete a formal qualification in a shorter period of time and at less cost.
  • It can increase your career and education options through formally recognised skills and knowledge.
