Skills Recognition

Get the credit you deserve

Australian Academy works with MySkills offering an outstanding opportunity for you and your staff to gain a nationally recognised qualification for the skills, knowledge and experience you have gained through your work on the job via the skills recognition, or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process.

What is skills recognition?

Generally speaking, RPL is a process where the skills and knowledge that you have gathered through real life experience and application, rather than learning from sitting in a classroom, can be formalised into recognised qualifications. Skills recognition is a process of matching the skills, knowledge and  experience you already have against a nationally accredited qualification. In some cases, this can mean receiving a qualification without having to undertake any training or study.

It is an upfront assessment process which evaluates and recognises the skills and knowledge you have gained from:

  • Previous study
  • Work experience
  • Work based training
  • Life experiences
  • Volunteer or community work
