Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) is available for all courses, subjects and units of learning and competency being offered by APC Design School.

If you have experience, skills and knowledge in your field of work – you may be eligible or even close to attaining a related qualification.

Recognised Prior Learning (RPL)
RPL and Skills Recognition is an assessment process allowing individuals to achieve all, or part, of a Nationally Recognised Qualification by demonstrating their vocational knowledge, skills and experience around a particular industry that is covered in our courses. Assessing qualifications by RPL requires the gathering of extensive portfolio evidence, Third Party Reports, Certificates and Transcripts for prior study and qualifications, references for vocational work experience and a mandatory Skype Interview with the Academic Coordinator, Design.

• Do you have a wealth of practical experience that you want recognised?
• Do you want to save the time and money in getting a qualification?
• Do you need to upgrade your qualification to get that promotion?

RPL should not be confused with Credit Transfer which is also available to all students enrolling in APC Design School’s education/training programs.

Credit Transfer – means credit towards a qualification granted to students on the basis of outcomes gained through participation in courses or national training package qualifications with another Registered Training Organisation.
