At various times in the year, AC is able to offer RPL for VET qualifications for people with 5 years or more relevant experience so they can gain recognition for their experience and fast-track their qualifications.

Course Information

Dear Applicant,

People with community services experience have the opportunity to obtain an accredited Diploma of Community Services by completion of evidence documentation and participating in a 5 day RPL. 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process through which the skills, knowledge and experience that you already have may count towards the achievement of a nationally recognised qualification. Sometimes also referred to as 'skills recognition', RPL involves a formal assessment process, focusing on your ability to demonstrate that you have the required level of skills, knowledge and experience to meet the requirements for competency in the unit/s within the qualification.

Students join a supportive cohort of experienced people from a variety of community services to share best practice and learn from one another. They also receive teaching and input from the best trainers and some of the great leaders in our movement.

Once you have been accepted into the course you will be given access to RPL documentation. On this platform you will be provided with training resources and further information regarding submission requirements.
