Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Recognition of Prior Learning is process by which a prospective student can demonstrate knowledge and competencies currently held, as a result of past experience or training, and through this, possibly gain credit towards a qualification.
SEDA Group will ensure that all students have the information, support and opportunities to engage in the RPL process and that assessment of RPL is efficient and fair.
This assessment process assesses an individual’s non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which the individual has achieved the required learning outcomes, competency outcomes, or standards for entry to, and/or partial or total completion, of a qualification. RPL is the formal recognition of the skills and knowledge a person has regardless of how or where they have been attained, that is, through informal or non-formal training, work experience, (paid and unpaid) voluntary work and life experience.
SEDA Group will ensure the assessment of RPL meets the requirements of the relevant Training Package or accredited course, is conducted in accordance with the principles of assessment and the rules of evidence, and meets workplace and, where relevant, regulatory requirements.
Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualification and statements of attainment issued by any other Registered Training Organisation (RTO) or AQF authorised issuing organisation or authenticated VET transcripts issued by the Register (USI) will be fully recognised by SEDA Group subject to sighting and verification. This will enable potential students to gain credit transfer prior to course commencement.
Recognition of Current Competency (RCC)
RCC applies if an individual has previously successfully completed the requirements of a unit of competency or module and is now required to be reassessed to ensure that the competence is being maintained.
SEDA Group will ensure that all students have the information, support and opportunities to engage in the RCC process and that assessment of RCC is efficient and fair.
