Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning

For the individual, Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the ideal way to add value to your years of prior study and hard-earned industry experience. For employers, it is a cost effective way to reward long-standing staff, while also giving them and their career a boost with a recognised qualification.With Certificates, Diplomas and even Bachelors on offer, TAFE Queensland Brisbane can aid you in turning years of hard work into any number of recognised, quality qualifications.

How Does RPL Help?

Through the RPL assessment process you may be eligible to gain a complete qualification or, if you have gaps in your knowledge, parts of a qualification which you can then complete with additional training.

Further from this, taking this option can:

  • Empower long-serving staff in need of recognition or a clearer path for career progression
  • Facilitate role changes in evolving industries
  • Solidify hard work put in to time on the job or in past courses/volunteer roles
  • Update skills to match new standards

What Credit is Available?

For Vocational Education and Training students, RPL may be granted up to 100% of a qualification. In the case of Higher Education students, RPL may be granted for two-thirds (67%) of a qualification.

My qualifications allowed me to put my experience into a formal framework, and then to market those skills. I’d recommend TAFE to anyone. They make an effort to know you. You’re never lost in the crowd.
