Event outline

Starting on Wednesday, 4 March 2015

There is so much conflicting information around about how to conduct an RPL and the AQTF requirements.  This workshop will help “bust some of the myths”. Gain a clear understanding of the RPL process and become more confident in designing RPL instruments and conducting assessments.  We’ll look at what the AQTF says about assessment as well as how to develop the most streamlined and effective way of conducting RPL, while still meeting the standards. Bring along RPL tools and examine them at the workshop. This course is suitable for lecturers, teachers and trainers who assess learners in the VET context.

The topic covered in this course include:

  • Streamlining RPL assessments
  • Best practice in RPL assessment
