SAIT seeks as its primary purpose, to enable members of Scouts Australia, who have completed learning through either the Youth Program or Adult Training & Development, the ability to seek, through a Recognition of Prior Learning process (RPL) externally accredited qualifications. Further Qualification information is available at

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Assessment through SAIT is usually based on the provision of a portfolio of evidence and professional conversations may be used to attest to a competency or authenticate evidence provided. A portfolio of evidence may comprise of:

  • Scout Portfolio (Youth Program or Adult Training achievements)
  • Completion of other Qualifications
  • A Curriculum Vitae (CV/Resume) and third party referees

Qualifications are issued in accordance with the Australian Qualifications Framework and SAIT complies with the current Standards for Registered Training Organisations. Further information including processes and policies for students is available in the SAIT Candidate Information Guide. 


External Organisations

SAIT has entered into arrangements with other organisations to provide RTO services for the Qualifications within SAIT’s scope and/or seek from other RTOs Qualifications not within its own scope. Regardless, where this occurs, a detailed agreement exists and is reviewed in line with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations.
