Diploma of Leadership and Management

Are you interested in earning the BSB51918 Diploma of Leadership and Management through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)? Are you in a role of responsibility? You may be eligible to receive this qualification based on the work you’ve already done. And, you could do it without having to complete any additional study.

  • Have you worked as a supervisor or team leader for some time?
  • Do you feel like you’ve reached your potential in your current role?
  • Would you like to stay at a management level but move into a different industry?

Then how about a qualification that showcases your transferrable skills!

When you’ve worked in a team leader, supervisory or equivalent capacity over a year or more, you’ve done a lot. The more that you did things, the better you got at them. You built skills and knowledge, and you gained experience that has given you a deeper understanding.

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.

In the employment market, qualifications are important. They’re the method by which we communicate our level of understanding. When you already understand something, there’s no need to study it. RPL means you don’t have to.

How does the RPL process work?

  1. We conduct a free preliminary skills assessment and give you a report
  2. You tell us the qualifications you want and provide evidence
  3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!

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.

  • You tell us what you’re looking for and where you want to go
  • You provide a few easily accessible documents
  • You’ll be sent a report within 48 hours. This will include a breakdown of costs involved and lists the qualifications:
    • you could be eligible for right now;
    • you could be eligible for if you are able to provide some further evidence (and we’ll share with you what the gaps are and the evidence we’d need); or
    • if training would be your best option. We don’t offer the training so we’ll give you some information about how to locate a training organisation who delivers what you are looking for.

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.

  • We tell you exactly what evidence we need to establish your competency in the units that make up a qualification
  • You provide your evidence, then you can sit back and relax!
  • We match the evidence to the units. This is called mapping. Other providers may get you to do this yourself.

Step 3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!
Congratulations! Your experience has been validated and translated into nationally recognised qualifications.

  • To save you time, we submit all the paperwork to the government for you. This formalises your qualifications.
  • You receive your qualifications though both email and post, within 14 days. Or, with our VIP Fast-Track Service, you can have them in just 7 days.

Are RPL qualifications nationally recognised? 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 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.
