Diploma of Ministry (Leadership)
RPL Experience
Application for Admission and Enrolment Form 

Dear Applicant,

We believe ministry experience matters! As a result, we designed this course specifically for those who have developed ministry skills and knowledge over time as a Christian leader (we recommend a minimum of five years). Therefore, though some online training is provided, the focus of this course in on assisting students to achieve accredited recognition of their skills and knowledge developed through their ministry experience.

With this in mind, to ensure this course is right for you at this time we have prepared a Self-Assessment Checklist which you must complete before applying.

The checklist details:

  1. The skills and knowledge you will need to be able demonstrate, and
  2. The kinds of evidence you will need to be able to provide to demonstrate these skills and knowledge including amongst other things, a Detailed Curriculum Vitae and References.

If after completing the checklist you believe you can provide all the required evidence by the end of the course, then we encourage you to apply. However, if you think you will be unable to provide it all at this time, then we recommend you consider speaking to one of our Future Students representatives about the formal study options we have available or revisiting this course when you are in a stronger position to satisfy the requirements.

NB: You will ultimately have the length of the course to provide all the required evidence. So, in cases where the evidence you require from previous experience is unavailable, you may still be able to arrange to produce some new evidence in your current ministry position to be submitted within the course timeframe.

For those who do not currently possess a ministry credential or have not had 5 years of ministry leadership experience, you may still be eligible. Eligibility will be assessed via an interview with one of our staff.

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