Recognition of Prior Learning 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process through which the experience, skills and knowledge that you already have can be converted to nationally recognised qualifications. It means that you don’t have to sit in a classroom and learn about things that you already know. You can just show evidence that you’ve covered it in your job.

Churchill Education often works with current and former Defence members. Defence personnel are often surprised at the qualifications they’re eligible to receive through RPL based on the training they’ve had and roles they’ve worked in while serving.

Whatever industry your background is in, RPL converts your experience to accredited qualifications that any employer can respect and appreciate.

Personal mentor

When you work with Churchill Education, we won’t assign you a trainer. Instead, we’ll assign you a mentor. Trainers deliver a set course in a set way. Mentors facilitate learning, however they can.

What students and customers are saying

Can personally vouch for Churchill Education!! Easy, affordable and they did everything for me.

Ana, RPL Customer

I have worked with a few online Institutes for certificates and Churchill are at the top! Supportive prompt and welcoming! …Overall highly recommend Churchill and will more than likely return to studies through them down the track.

Hollie, Student

Recently used CE for a few qualifications. Couldn’t have asked for a better company to deal with for RPL. Every bit of correspondence by phone or email was great. The most polite customer service team I have experienced in a long time.

Well done CE. Thanks for the quals.

Luke, RPL Customer

A lot of my mates still in the forces are very interested about this service and I will be highly recommending you guys to all of them for the professionalism, the knowledge and the ease of the process for someone who is absolutely inept at paperwork (like myself).

 Josh, Defence RPL Customer

My husband and I have both used Churchill Education to get RPLs. I can highly recommend them. They confirmed that I certainly did have enough experience for several RPLs and it has opened up different pathways for me. I know of Defence and ex-Defence people who have used Churchill and they have also had really good experiences dealing with Churchill Education. Don’t waste your time with any other RTO!!

Melissa, Defence RPL Customer

I returned to work today to find your package with my Certificate and Diploma and wanted to write and say thanks to you and your team for making the RPL so hassle free. I have recommended Churchill Education to several colleagues who are looking to further their study, so don’t be surprised if you get a few more enquiries from the organisation.

Evan, RPL Customer

It was this diploma that helped me score my dream job!! 38 applicants and only 4 of us had this diploma. I am very appreciative!!

Rosie, Student

I RPL’d my diploma with Churchill and it was super easy. Definitely recommend going through them if you’re keen in getting some quals.

Mel-Ann, RPL Customer

Completing my study with Churchill was a stress free experience.
My trainer was amazing and one of the nicest people I have ever met.
She was always easy to contact should I have a question, and would bend over backward to accommodate my every need.
I would highly recommend Churchill to anyone that is looking at studying.

Amy-Jo, Student

Churchill Education is who I did my Diploma of Education Support through. They are very helpful and support you all the way.

Michelle, Student

I RPL’d my diploma with Churchill and it was super easy. Definitely recommend going through them if you’re keen to get some quals.
