How you can have your existing skills and experience recognised?
Skills Recognition (sometimes referred to as Recognition of Prior Learning, or even Recognition of Current Competency) is a way of recognising and assessing your existing skills or competence.
For any qualification you need to achieve a basic number of competencies in different areas.
You can gain skills recognition for what you have already achieved through life or work experience, by formal coursework at other recognised institutions or by attending workshops and training activities. You can then prepare a case for recognition with our course coordinator who will submit your evidence to an accreditation committee.
Because there is a large number of competency units to choose from, you will need to chart a pathway that fully recognises your existing skills and also meets the requirements of the qualification you are seeking. Our course coordinator will help you do this.
