Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

ACCCO provides individualised and innovative training and assessment which incorporates the potential for advanced standing upon evidence of a students’ relevant prior learning, where applicable. The purpose of this procedure is to ensure each student’s evidence of prior learning is systematically assessed for recognition purposes in alignment with the rules of evidence as determined by the Vocational Education Training (VET) industry regulatory body, the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).

Please note, RPL is not necessarily a quick process. A student is required to collate and coordinate evidence to show they have sufficient, valid and current knowledge and skills equivalent to the qualification they are enrolled in.

Once the evidence has been collated by the student and submitted, an ACCCO Trainer will consider the evidence of skills and knowledge the student has provided, matching this evidence against the relevant qualification.

During the RPL process, the student will be asked to:

  • Providing details about how current and previous employment, previous training and other learning relates to the unit requirements
  • Complete a self evaluation of the knowledge and skills they posses against the unit criteria, and provide evidence of the completion of those competencies
  • Engage in competency conversation to discuss their knowledge and skill with the Trainer
  • Complete workplace tasks
  • Provide validation from a supervisor about typical workplace performance.
