What is Employer RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment pathway that allows individuals to get a Nationally Recognised Qualification using their existing skills, knowledge and experience.

By providing relevant supporting evidence against units of competency, staff Australia-wide can achieve their qualification in weeks.

The 4 degrees of RPL



Recognition has a proven impact on employee motivation and retention. Rewarding your employees with an accredited qualification or opportunities for development can go far in encouraging productivity, commitment and long-term employment



Implementing an active training and development strategy within your business is one way of retaining current staff, attracting potential employees, and reducing high turnover rates and replacement costs, especially if part of a remuneration package.



RPL can help you and your employees adequately meet regulatory requirements by validating an employee's competence in their appointed workplace position. This includes accreditation requirements and the training needs of your industry.



Including Skills Recognition & RPL as part of your redundancy program will help you prepare your dismissed employees for future roles, and improve their chances of finding a position once they leave your company. It's also a great way to reward them for their time and service.
