How do I apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?

Recognition of Prior learning is a process of acknowledging previously completed qualifications, skills, knowledge, or experience relevant to your course. This may reduce the amount of learning required, and allow you to gain your qualification faster.

To apply for RPL, please contact the staff at your TAFE NSW campus to discuss how you may gain credit through recognition of your skills, knowledge, or experience from your previous part-time, full-time, or casual work.

TAFE NSW may also recognise relevant skills gained through community or volunteer work, sports team management, domestic responsibilities, or even hobbies and leisure activities. These skills may be assessed as equivalent to meet the requirements of up to 100% of the course you are enrolled in.
