Application for RPL
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that assesses the competency(s) of a person that may have been acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning as follows;
- formal learning - learning that takes place through a structured program of instruction and is linked to the attainment of a qualification (eg a university degree)
- non-formal learning - learning that takes place through a structured program of instruction, but does not lead to a formal qualification or statement (eg in-house professional development programs conducted by a business, sports club, professional organisation)
- informal learning - learning that takes place as a result of work-related, social, family, hobby or leisure activities (eg using online tutorials to teach yourself software skills, industry skills developed by working freelance or as an employee).
The RPL process incurs a fee.
- Application fee - $250
- RPL fee - charged per unit of competence for which you are determined to be eligible for RPL
