Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is the assessment of skills or knowledge required for entry to, or credit towards, a qualification, where there are no credentials as proof. Credit for RPL will be available only where it is suitable and appropriate to a specific award course and only where a student’s or intending student’s previous non-formal or informal learning is assessed as having met the learning outcomes and assessment criteria required for satisfactory completion of a particular subject/s within the relevant course.
This process is individualised to reflect specific student needs/experiences. The student must supply appropriate documentation as outlined in the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Procedure.
The College conducts a mapping analysis comparing the VET qualification obtained from a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), or units of competency from a VET qualification to the Higher Education Learning Outcomes of the College qualification. This process identifies the criteria of 80% similarity in content, duration and degree of difficulty and conversely identifies 'gaps' in knowledge and skill. From this analysis appropriate credit transfer guidelines are generated as a basis for evaluating informal and formal articulation pathways.
Credit transfer is a process that involves the assessment of previous or concurrent formal studies by a student in higher education at another institution towards gaining a qualification at a higher education level. The process determines whether those studies are equivalent to, or correspond with, the learning outcomes or standards required for award of a qualification from the College, and whether those studies may be counted (credited) towards completion of the program that leads to the award of that qualification.
Applications for credit based solely on formal education must be within a timeframe such that the content of the credit is current. Therefore, only subjects studied within the past ten years may be considered for credit transfer.
