    Employability Skills

Information on the Employability Skills relevant to your qualification can be obtained by visiting this website and keying in the national code for the qualification: http://employabilityskills.training.com.au.

    Skills Recognition

    Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

    RPL is the acknowledgement of a person's skills and knowledge acquired through previous training, work or life experience, which may be used to grant status or credit in a subject regardless of how and where they were attained, including overseas.
    This can include skills from:

        * Previous study excluding courses at another VET/TAFE institution, but including courses at school or college,
        * through adult education classes or training programs at work;
        * Work experience (including both work that is paid and unpaid); and/or
        * Life experience (for example leisure pursuits or voluntary work).

    RPL is a form of assessment. It is used to determine whether a person has acquired, through formal or informal learning, the skills and experience consistent with the stated competency standards that comprise a qualification. RPL is not time referenced, so there are no parameters on how or when the skills are acquired. However, the skills that have been acquired through life experience etc., must be current and must match the elements and performance criteria contained in the individual unit.

    Students seeking RPL need to indicate this on their enrolment form at the time of enrolment.

    See the RPL Guide for Applicants for further information on the RPL application process.


    Credit Transfer or Recognition of Previous Study

    Charles Darwin University as a Registered Training Organisation recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statement of Attainments issued by any other Australian Registered Training Organisation.
    Students are encouraged to submit any requests for credit from previous studies at the time of enrolment, to ensure they are not enrolling in units they may not need to undertake.

    In order to apply for exemption/credit transfer from units completed at another training organisation, you will need to complete an Application for Exemption Form available from any campus, centre, or team, or a copy of the form can be obtained from the web.

    Your completed Application for Exemption form together with attached documentary evidence (certified copy of Qualification/Statement of Attainment) to support your request for exemption/credit transfer should be submitted directly to the University either in person or by mail. Requests without documentary evidence will not be processed and will be returned to students. There are no fees attached to Credit Transfers.
    Recognition of Prior Learning and Recognition of current Competency is available for students currently employed in the industry or, by other means, able to demonstrate their skills and knowledge against their field of study may have these formally recognised against their desired qualification. Assessments for RPL/RCC may be obtained through workplace assessment or at any of the University/Colleges campuses.

    Direct Credit Transfer - Where students can formally demonstrate their skills and knowledge from previous nationally recognised studies obtained through Registered Training Organisations, Direct Credit transfer is available.
