Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning

What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the ideal way to add value to your years of prior study and hard-earned industry experience. Our expert team will carefully assess your career so far, including past qualifications, daily duties, and volunteering efforts to match you to an industry relevant qualification. Whatever your goal or industry, this is a genuine opportunity to give your career a boost.


For working professionals, RPL may be granted up to 100% of a vocational qualification (certificate or diploma). In the case of degrees, RPL may be granted for two-thirds (67%) of a qualification.

Our assessment process carefully considers your proven skills, existing qualifications across all levels, job title, and more. This allows us to align you to the right (and desired) qualification, certificate, diploma or degree, with the appropriate level of course credit. However much credit you are awarded, the qualification provided is no different to any other - it is a fully recognised piece of paper attained in less time and at a lower cost.

For Employers

Recognition of Prior Learning allows employers to recognise the hard work and wealth of experience of their team in a way that empowers one and all. Specialist projects, industry shifts and more can be tackled with greater confidence when every member of your team is given access to added skills, built upon their years of effort.

Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care

Amy has turned a love for children into an exciting career in childcare in less time and with little sacrifice in her day-to-day.

I could not have done this course without the flexibility and support TAFE provides. Studying externally and through the RPL system is extremely thorough and detailed. I have been so blessed by the amazing support from my trainer.

Since graduating in September 2015, Amy has quickly become a key operator within her childcare group and is keen to reach higher and higher as her career progresses.
