Scouts Australia, through its registered training organisation (RTO: 5443), can recognise prior learning when working towards qualifications. But what does being “current” mean?
When you are completing Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), one of the key requirements that your assessor needs to verify is that your skills and knowledge are current. But what does currency really look like, how long is it before your skills and knowledge are not considered current?
For example, someone who has been canoeing for the last 20 years including regular participation in the last three years will have a greater opportunity to complete an assessment via RPL than someone who has been canoeing on and off for 20 years, but has not got in a canoe in the last three years.
To find out how you can convert your experience to industry recognised qualifications, visit the Scouts Australia Institute of Training.
