Available Classes

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop and implement a customised recognition plan that may be used for recognition of prior learning (RPL) leading to completion of training products that are nationally recognised. It requires the ability to follow organisational approaches to prepare information and advice on recognition, and to identify evidence-gathering opportunities. The unit applies to experienced vocational education and training (VET) assessors who work under limited supervision and undertake assessor-led, customised recognition-based assessment for an organisation. No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication. All assignments are completed online making it easy and portable to keep track of where you are up to.

  • Students will be paying this course in two payments, one with an initial fee of $200 on enrolment, with a marking fee of $75 to be paid when the assessor has finished marking your unit.
  • This unit must be completed within 3 months. Extensions (1 month - $50, 3 month - $150, 6 month - $350) can be purchased through the office upon request.
  • All students have 90 days to submit the required documentation on enrolment or WEA Sydney reserves the right to cancel their enrolment.
  • Access to our online learning platform will be issued once we have received and verified all your supporting documentation and USI number.

Course entry requirements

Those entering this program must be able to demonstrate vocational competency in their proposed teaching and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience. Effective language, literacy and numeracy skills to plan, research and write a range of documentation and present information as well as access to a computer and internet is also required. Please notify us during the enrolment process of any additional learning needs to maximise your potential. Please ensure that you have read the WEA Sydney Student Handbook before enrolling.

  • Discuss mapping outcomes and agree additional required evidence with candidate
  • Determine requirements for reports from other parties, and the other evidence that must be supplied to validate those reports

Prepare RPL kit for applicant
