RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL) OR CURRENT COMPETENCE (RCC)

WHAT IS RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process whereby competency acquired through education, training, work experience, previous or current work and/or life experience may be formally recognised. It is an assessment process that recognises your current skills and experience, regardless of where and when the learning occurred. It is the formal acknowledgement of a person’s current skills and knowledge, no matter how, when or where the learning occurred.

Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC) allows for acknowledgement and documentation of an individual’s current knowledge and skills without limiting the means by which the knowledge and skills may have been gained.
RPL/RCC are based on the understanding that people learn in different ways. It acknowledges that people learn through work experience, life skills and experience, as well as by education and training, be this informal or formal.
RPL/RCC takes into account a person’s acquired knowledge and skills plus experiences to provide credit towards formal qualification.

These processes involve identification and formal recognition of competence no matter where it has been acquired. Competence is usually acquired in one or more of the following broad areas:

  1. EDUCATION AND TRAINING

    School/College/University qualifications, Industry in-house courses (Includes formal and structured training)

  2. WORK EXPERIENCE, PREVIOUS OR CURRENT WORK

    On-the-job experience, including paid/unpaid work; full-time, part-time and casual work

  3. LIFE EXPERIENCE

    Unpaid or volunteer work, community group involvement, family and leisure activities, cultural activity or
    experience

NB: In the event that insufficient evidence is collected against a competency (or part of a competency) your assessor will negotiate further evidence requirements with you; this may be additional training and/or research, or you may be asked to complete an assessment task.
