Recognising your previous learning and experience

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) can be applied if you have previous experience and skills in your chosen course field. If you can provide evidence of this, a trainer will be able to help you build a portfolio and talk you through the interview process. You will then need to gather evidence about your achievements and have the option to complete individual units or clusters within your chosen course.

If you wish to apply for RPL you will be provided with an RPL kit that will guide you through the type of information you will need to provide. SIELL will assess the evidence provided and determine which units of competency can be granted by RPL and which units you will need to complete.
