Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a process of assessment aimed at identifying and formally recognising competencies obtained outside the formal education and training environment. More information on RPL can be found here
The Tubal RPL online assessment process provides candidates with the tools needed to support them through the process. Candidates are provided with:
- Self-assessment tool
- List of types of evidence required
- Third party report templates
- List of required knowledge questions
- Ongoing contact with the Tubal assessor e.g. email, phone, text, etc.
How it works?
Tubal has an easy to follow 6 step process for applying for RPL online in the above qualifications. A detailed explanation of the steps involved in this process can be downloaded here.
Step 1 - Apply Online
Step 2 - Eligibility Review
We’ll check to see if RPL is the right choice for you and then if you’re happy to proceed, we’ll also send you an RPL kit that explains evidence requirements, timeframes, we provide useful templates, and details of your assessor so you can contact them at any time.
Step 3 - Wait for us to contact you
The Tubal assessor will contact you within 2 working days of the RPL Application being received and discuss your suitability (or otherwise) for RPL. The assessor will also discuss the selection of the units of competency best suited to your existing skills and knowledge, and be able to give you a cost. Approximate costs for each qualification vary.
It is important to note that payment must be made before the process can proceed beyond this point.
Step 4 - Gather required evidence
This will include providing you with:
- Access to the Tubal online Learning Management System (LMS).
- A list of the types of evidence required to be gathered by you and submitted as the cornerstone of your RPL claim.
- Details for maintaining ongoing contact with the Tubal assessor. You and the assessor will also at this point discuss timeframes for completion of the RPL process and issuance of the qualification.
Past experience indicates that if you have ready access to the required evidence the entire process can be completed within four weeks; but this will be negotiated between you and the Tubal assessor.
Step 5 - Submit all evidence online
- Gather the evidence as required
- Upload documentation to the Tubal LMS
- Answer the knowledge component online
Step 6 - Assessment
The Tubal assessor will now conduct the assessment of your RPL application. During the assessment process the Tubal assessor will examine all the evidence you have provided
The assessor may contact you seeking additional evidence and may make a time to discuss the application with you to gain further information. The assessor will complete their entries on the Tubal system, and assess you as COMPETENT or NOT YET COMPETENT. Please refer to the online RPL process document for more information on our submission policies.
All outstanding monies must be paid before issuance is finalised
