Instead of leaving the public service when you want a change of career, you can instead change the public service you work for or switch departments.
As a significant and competitive employment opportunity, if you are an experienced public servant it is wise to capitalise on your experience to obtain qualifications through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
Fees and Payment
RPL qualifications range from $995 – $3500.
We have a range of payment options available for you including: Bank Transfer, Credit Card, Instalment Payment Plans and Finance Options. Find out more here.
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.
○ You could be eligible for right now
○ You could be eligible for with a little more online gap training.
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.
Congratulations! Your experience has been validated and translated into nationally recognised qualifications.
Nationally Recognised Qualifications
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.
