Recognition of prior learning (RPL) acknowledges a person’s knowledge and skill no matter where or when they learned it. This can then be counted towards a qualification. This means a person does not have to re-study something they already know, provided their knowledge is current & can be proven. It works like this……
Your skills will be assessed against industry standards. This is done by an RPL assessor. You may be asked to: 1. perform tasks or jobs 2. talk about and explain how you do those jobs 3. provide samples of your work. A visit to your workplace may be organised so you can demonstrate your abilities. You may have to provide job descriptions, references or performance appraisals. The assessor will consider your skills and knowledge and match them against a suitable qualification.
Workskills International provides this service for the hospitality Industry and works in partnership with registered training organisations as a specialised assessor in the
Business, Training & Hospitality fields to support industry and learners on their RPL options.
