Get the credit you deserve
Australian Sports Academy is offering an outstanding opportunity for you and your staff to gain a nationally recognised qualification for the skills, knowledge and experience you have gained through your work on the job via the skills recognition, or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process.
What is skills recognition
Generally speaking, RPL is a process where the skills and knowledge that you have gathered through real life experience and application, rather than learning from sitting in a classroom, can be formalised into recognised qualifications. Skills recognition is a process of matching the skills , knowledge and experience you already have against a nationally accredited qualification. In some cases, this can mean receiving a qualification without having to undertake any training or study.
It is an upfront assessment process which evaluates and recognises the skills and knowledge you have gained from:
- Previous study
- Work experience
- Work based training
- Life experiences
- Volunteer or community work.
Qualifications are of benefit to you because:
- Employers often require a certificate or qualification when recruiting or promoting workers
- They can help you to enter the workforce
- They can help you to re-enter the workforce
- Qualifications help you to change careers
- Recognised qualilfications can help you get a promotion
- They can improve your job security
- Recognised qualifications can help you to enter into to further study.
