What is recognition of prior learning (RPL) and how will it apply?

RPL is the acknowledgement of skills obtained through work experience, life experience, formal training and informal training. At Atkinson Child Care College, we understand that learning takes place in a variety of settings and are able to assess specific competencies based on the existing skills you have. This is offered to all students and is particularly valuable to those with current or prior experience in Children’s Services. Ask our staff about RPL and your study options today.
