Skills recognition

Victoria Plus recognises that your workforce may already have strong skill sets and experience.

Our team offers a specialist Industry Skills Recognition service (often referred to as Recognition of Prior Learning or RPL).

Our team will work collaboratively with your internal programs, mapping your staff and courses to nationally recognised training package qualifications.

We can also review your existing training programs and identify and design additional ‘gap’ training to support your current delivery.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

RPL acknowledges that people learn in many different ways and that learning may have been obtained through:

  • formal learning - which takes place within a teacher-student relationship, such as in a school system, at university or TAFE, and is formally recognised with grades, diplomas or certificates
  • non-formal learning - occurs in a formal learning environment, but is not formally recognised within a curriculum or syllabus framework (workshops, community courses, interest based courses, short courses, or conference style seminars)
  • informal learning - occurs in a variety of places, such as at home, work, and through daily interactions and relationships with members of society
  • a combination of all.

TAFE Skills recognition tool

Some of our TAFE courses use an online skills recognition tool that allows you to complete the RPL process in your own time and at your own pace.

You'll answer a range of simple questions which will determine your suitability for skills recognition. You'll also need to provide any evidence you have which supports your claim of current knowledge/skills.
