Advantages of RPL

Saves Cost, Time and Effort

The advantage of RPL is it saves cost, time and effort. For a typical Diploma, you may have to spend about a year of full-time study.

RPL provides a qualification in a fraction of cost and time in comparison to the traditional way of study. It saves a lot of time, money and effort for you. By completing a qualification through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), you can catch opportunities faster, keep working, make money and maintain your personal and professional life balance. A formal qualification can help in getting a better job, better pay and the recognition of your qualifications and skills.

Possible University Exemptions

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) converts your experience into a formal qualification which can provide an exemption in your higher study to a university. If you have a Diploma, you may have to study one year less for a Bachelor or a Masters degree. This provision may depend on the Educational Institution. Therefore, WIDEN encourages you to check with the university you intend to enrol with if they provide an exemption for your study.

In our experience, candidates have been able to get a significant exemption from the university for our qualification. By doing so they were able to reduce time and cost for the course they enrolled. This is one of the many advantages the Recognition Of Prior Learning (RPL) has.

Assistance with Migration Process

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) provides a formal qualification from an Australian College based on work experience provided by candidates. This process often helps in application to the Department of Immigration for a visa. Department looks at the experience and the qualification a candidate has a position for a work visa and permanent residency points will be calculated for a permanent visa. Work experience will have to be assessed by the assessing bodies in order to be recognised. When an Australian College recognises those experience and provides a formal qualification, it is often looked at positively by the department.

This is one of the many advantages of assessing for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Professional Development

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) recognises the experience and skills the candidate has. It also finds out the weakness and gap of competencies in a candidate in order to get a qualification. Our partner college trains a candidate for those gaps. You are getting recognised for the skills you have and getting a gap training for the skills you need. So, who do you think is a winner? It is you. You get the qualification you need, save cost and time, and get smart training. It will boost your confidence. It will take you a long way in your career.
