1. RPL demonstrates your knowledge
When you’re ready to change your career, the skills and knowledge gained from experience must be recognized. That is why RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) can be so valuable – they take into account all forms of learning with an emphasis on real-world application by converting unique experiences into nationally recognised qualifications which will give applicants more verifiable evidence when applying for new roles or promotions against competition other than the lack thereof!
2. Keep your skills current with RPL
Obtaining a qualification through RPL has the same weight as a qualification obtained through traditional study. Because of this, you’ll be able to explore further education to keep your skills up to date. A diploma-level qualification may shorten the required study for a bachelor’s degree. So having your experience converted into qualifications can save you time and money when exploring future upskilling opportunities.
3. Improve your online presence
It should go without saying that you should keep your resume up to date when it comes to jobs. On the other hand, recruiters aren’t just looking at your resume. If they’re interested in you, particularly at a higher level, you can bet they’ll look you up on the internet. So, when it comes to putting the best foot forward, ensure your online presence is still in good shape.
4. Demonstrate your versatility
Recognition of Prior learning allows you to have skills and experience accredited that you might not have considered otherwise. If you’ve worked within office administration for several years and then transitioned to project management, your job history might indicate some of your skills. Still, a certificate IV in business (obtained through RPL) alongside your job experience will enhance your resume and provide evidence of your versatility in the workplace.
5. Start looking for work sooner
Examine the requirements for the positions you want to apply for. Do you possess the required skills and experience? Do you, above all, hold the necessary qualifications? If you already have relevant experience in the industry but no piece of paper, RPL is perfect for you! You can have your qualification in weeks not years depending on the evidence you provide. With such a quick turnaround, you can start applying for roles sooner.
