Upskilled recognises that many participants acquire vocational skills from a variety of different sources outside of formal training. These skills are valid, irrespective of how they were acquired.
Participants who believe they have existing skills and knowledge that would be covered in an Upskilled training program should apply at time of enrolment to have their expertise assessed and, where appropriate, to have their particular training program reduced.
Participants can make an application for RPL at any time during their training program. An RPL application pack is available from the National Education and Compliance Manager.
Recognition of other qualifications
All qualifications and statements of attainment issued by other Registered Training Organisations are fully recognised by Upskilled. Where appropriate, these can be used to reduce a training program being offered by Upskilled.
Participants seeking recognition for other qualifications are required to provide original certificates or certified copies to the Head Trainer or, in some cases, to the course trainer, who will make note of the qualification. This process is typically observed where participants produce a prerequisite qualification for an Upskilled course they are wishing to undertake.
Credit Transfer Policy
Credit Transfer is available to participants enrolling in any Upskilled course program. Credit Transfer involves the awarding of credit towards a qualification, granted to participants on the basis of outcomes gained through participation in courses with another RTO.
