Accredited qualifications earned through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) can give you an edge.
Are you interested in:
Applying for a job with a formal qualification rather than just your practical experience gives employers confidence in your skill level.
What is Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?
RPL stands for 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.
Getting qualifications through RPL 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.
You may also need official qualifications (that piece of paper!) to meet government regulations for certain jobs, or to progress into higher-paying roles.
A minimum of six months of relevant experience is required and the experience cited as evidence must be from the last five years.
How does the RPL process work?
Let’s step this out a bit more:
Step 1. We conduct a free preliminary skills assessment and give you a report.
The RPL process begins with a conversation with one of our Skills Advisors.
This is cost-free and obligation-free.
Step 2. You tell us the qualifications you want and provide evidence.
You can make an informed decision about which qualifications are best for you and your career. Once this is confirmed, we can complete the process.
Step 3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!
Congratulations! Your experience has been validated and translated into nationally recognised qualifications.
RPL qualifications range from $995 – $3500.
Flexible payment plans are available to eligible students. More info here.
RPL clients are also welcome to pay Churchill Education directly.
Is Government funding available? Yes. Ask us for which qualifications.
People who live in Queensland may be eligible for subsidised RPL through Queensland Government funding programs. The qualifications that attract subsidies are those that the Queensland Government has designated as priorities, meaning that more skilled workers are needed in these areas.
Eligible individuals can complete Recognition of Prior Learning under the Higher Level Skills and Certificate 3 Guarantee Queensland Government funding programs.
As an example of how QLD government funding works with Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care costs $995 for RPL. If you are a QLD resident and qualify for Certificate 3 Guarantee QLD government funding, you would pay a co-contribution fee of $80 (or $40 concession) to RPL in the course.
Are RPL qualifications accredited? Yes.
Churchill Education is a registered training organisation, RTO:31430. This means that we are regulated by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), the Australian Government regulatory body for the VET sector.
The qualifications that we offer are accredited and nationally recognised, and issued under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Accordingly, they’re exactly the same as those granted by other educational institutions such as TAFE.
