Top 3 RPL Qualifications for NSW

Many people have been asking us for our recommendations on the best qualifications for career opportunities in New South Wales.

Our recommendations are based on industry requirements and remuneration, but also on work/life balance and career flexibility.

Because in our experience the most useful qualifications are those that demonstrate your versatility and adaptability so that you are always equipped to respond proactively to change – whether that be in your current role or industry, or the ability to change industries as opportunities present.

Recognition of Prior Learning – New South Wales

New South Wales (NSW) is home to almost a third of Australians, and at more than half-a-trillion dollars, accounts for around a third of the nation’s total economic output. This makes it Australia’s largest state economy.

NSW has a diverse, service driven economy as compared to the commodity driven economies of Western Australia and Queensland. 

Over the past 20 years, the services sector has steadily grown to account for close to 80% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and 90% of employment. 

NSW is particularly strong in business services, which accounts for more than 30% of Gross State Product (GSP). This includes financial services, professional, scientific, technical, property information and telecommunications. 

The sectors of construction, manufacturing, health and education also account for significant shares of GSP. 

NSW is home to more than 65% of regional head offices for more than 600 Asia Pacific companies. 

Employment in the financial services industry in Sydney is more than one third the size of New York City, and almost half the size of London’s!

Now is a great time to convert your skills, knowledge and experience into qualifications through the process of recognition of prior learning (RPL), and make the most of NSW’s thriving economy.

RPL means you don’t have to study what you already know and can do. Plus it saves you time and money!

Why should you try RPL?

  • Get promoted in your current profession and industry
  • Demonstrate the transferability of your skills to move to a new industry
  • Ensure your qualifications match your experience for future career pivots

It all starts with a free assessment:

How does the RPL process work?

  1. We conduct a free qualification appraisal 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 qualification appraisal and give you a report.
The RPL process begins with a conversation with one of our Skills Recognition 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.
