Find out how RPL can work for you


Comprehensive Assessment

Our RPL process thoroughly assesses the experience, skills, and knowledge you have gained through formal education, work and life experience. This ensures that you don’t have to relearn what you already know, and you will receive a formal qualification that truly reflects your capabilities.

Quick and Convenient

With RPL, you can achieve a formal qualification quickly and conveniently without going through a lengthy training program. This means you can advance your career prospects without taking time off work or sacrificing your personal time.

Accessible to All

RPL is available to everyone, regardless of educational background. This means that if you have gained knowledge and experience in a non-traditional way, you can still achieve a formal qualification that recognises your expertise.


Boost Career Prospects

By gaining a formal qualification through RPL, you can enhance your career prospects and increase your chances of securing a higher-paying job with better benefits. This can lead to greater job satisfaction for you, and benefits businesses who enjoy improved staff morale and higher levels of employee loyalty.

Save Time and Money

RPL is a cost-effective and time-efficient way to gain a formal qualification. This means that you can save money on the cost of traditional training programs and can avoid taking time off work to attend classes. You can also achieve a formal qualification more quickly, allowing you to accelerate progression in your career.

Recognition of Skills and Knowledge

RPL recognises your existing skills and knowledge, allowing you to gain a formal qualification based on prior experience. This means that you can quickly update your skills and build your credentials without repeating the training you have already completed. It also gives you a sense of recognition and achievement for the skills and knowledge you have gained outside of traditional education.

I recently completed my diploma in CY&FI and my course trainer Jo was fantastic. Jo was supportive and patient through the whole process and assisted me in working through RPL documentation with ease. I'm currently employed as a residential coordinator in the child protection sector and the skills that this course has afforded me are put to good use every day. I highly recommend Skills Generation and refer all my support workers to complete their studies with them.

I highly recommend Skills Generation for Career progression, My Educator was Anne Fisher and I could not fault the outstanding effort, support and training from Anne. Compared to previous studies i have undertaken with other providers, Anne stood well above my previous lecturers with constant support and assistance when requested, Anne would always make time to work with me via video conference, phone calls and emails. From recognition of RPL, discussing my current skills set, exploring my future career path, The empowerment and encouragement from Anne was second to none, Anne would always go above and beyond her role to explore future options and career paths which have elevated my career well above the goals and desires I had prior to commencing this diploma. As other providers offer this diploma, my colleagues have since advised they should have enrolled with Skills Generation. I will definitely be using Skills Generation in the future for any further certificates i can obtain within my field.
