Recognition of Prior Learning

Did you know that when you enrol in a TAFE New England course, the skills, knowledge and experience you have gained from your previous learning, work experience and life in general may be taken into account? This is known as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Recognition of Prior Learning can mean that you may be able to complete your studies sooner!

Take some time to think about your skills, knowledge and prior qualifications. You can apply for recognition towards your TAFE New England qualification if you have:

  • Completed previous studies at TAFE New South Wales (any institute)
  • Completed study at alternative accredited educational institutions within Australia
  • Gained skills and qualifications overseas
  • Or have relevant work and life experience.

You need to enrol in your chosen course before you are able to apply for Recognition. Once you have enrolled, you will need to apply for recognition prior to classes commencing. Want to know more or ready to apply? Don't wait! Contact our friendly customer service team! 1800 448 176.
