Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a way of turning your existing skills, knowledge and experience into a formal qualification. RPL is a form of assessment that acknowledges your skills and knowledge gained from:
- Previous training and education
- Current and past work experience (paid or voluntary, traineeships), and
- Life experience.
Regardless of how you obtained them, the RPL process takes into account all the skills, knowledge and experience that you have relevant to the target qualification. Through the assessment process you may be able to gain the full qualification or, if you have gaps in your knowledge and skills base, parts of a qualification which you can then complete with additional training.
How to apply for RPL
Step 1: Register your interest and collect your evidence
Register your interest with ATI-Mirage and gather all the documentation about your skills and experience that will assist the assessor in deciding if you can gain RPL for specific units or a full qualification.
The documentation you gather may include, but is not limited to:
- Results of any previous assessments
- Details of in-house or onsite courses or training programs
- Your resume
- Current and past position/job descriptions
- Workplace documents (further details will be provided)
- Samples of documents that you have produced.
Our Assessor will work with you during the RPL process to determine exactly what evidence is required.
Step 2: RPL Interview
The RPL interview provides you the opportunity to have a professional conversation with your assessor about the qualification and/or choice of units.
Step 3: Your assessor will review your claim
An assessor will review your skills and knowledge based on the evidence you have provided and match them to units within a qualification. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your previous experience with the assessor.
Step 4: You will be notified of outcome
After the assessment of your prior learning, your assessor will advise you about the skills and knowledge that have been recognised and whether this is sufficient for ATI-Mirage to award the full qualification.
If you do have any skill gaps, the assessor will discuss with you how these may be addressed through flexible training options to complete the qualification.
