Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

What is Recognition of Prior Learning:

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that provides Students with an opportunity to receive credit for the formal and non-formal learning that has been undertaken since leaving school. The RPL process considers all relevant qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience that has been acquired throughout your working life. The RPL Assessment process enables the Assessor to collect a range of evidence to assist Students with either completing a full qualification or a partial qualification depending on the skills, knowledge and experience. If you have been granted a partial qualification throughout the RPL process, then you will be able to complete your qualification by undertaking the necessary gap training identified by our Assessor with our College.

RPL Process

1. Complete the Enrolment Application Form

2. Submit all relevant documentation to support your application such as your current Resume, workplace reference letters, photographs of any evidence from the workplace and any other documentary evidence relevant to the Application

3. Pay the required deposit

Once all of the above information has been submitted, a BPC representative will contact you to arrange an interview to discuss your Application and to explain the process of meeting the requirements of the RPL process in order to issue you the relevant qualification.
