“We’re all conscious that we need to continuously be learning, and be able to pivot, adapt and move for a whole range of reasons, from redundancy to industries dying out, etc. But that doesn’t necessarily mean we can commit to months or years of study.”
– Lisa Cox

In short – you learnt a lot.

This learning is just as important and valid as classroom learning – some would say more so. But, it can be hard to communicate. That’s where getting qualified through RPL (or Recognition of Prior Learning) comes in.
