Recognition of Prior Learning

Learners have the option to submit evidence for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL involves the assessment of previously unrecognized skills and knowledge an individual has achieved outside the formal education and training.

RPL assesses this unrecognised learning against the requirements of a qualification or Unit of Competency in respect of both entry requirements and outcomes to be achieved.

To apply for an RPL, a learner must enrol into the course and notify Trainers without Borders that they would like to apply for RPL. An RPL document will then be supplied to the learner which will outline all the evidence requirements.

 Evidence requirements include:

  • Certificates detailing units of competency attained through other credit bearing
  • A letter from the learner’s employer outlining their roles, responsibility and experience in the workplace.
  • An attendance registers from internal training sessions.
  • An attendance registers from any industry workshop sessions specific to the Units of Competency being applied for.
  • Any other evidence that may be required, specific to the course, and Interview with the Trainer/Assessor.

Based on the evidence submitted, Trainers would let the learner know of their RPL outcome and advise if any further assessments must be completed, fees and charges will apply determined on a case to case basis.

If you have any queries please contact Trainers without Borders for further information.
