Education and training

Have work experience but not the qualifications?

If you don't have a formal qualification but have gained skills and knowledge through experience, you may be a candidate for recognition prior learning (RPL). RPL is a way to use your existing skills and knowledge to gain a formal qualification.

It involves getting your current knowledge and experience assessed and takes into account other qualifications you may already have.
It means you can get a qualification without sitting in a classroom learning things you already know.

Find out more about RPL including eligibility for fee exemptions:

Even if you don't think you are eligible for RPL course fee exemptions or concessions, you can still access free advice.

Contact the Career Centre who can help you assess your interests and skills, and make suggestions about the options available to you.
