Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

NAVA Online Courses can be linked to units of competency in the Visual Arts Crafts and Design Training Package (CUV11 - Visual Arts, Crafts and Design Training Package). This means they are aligned with national standards for Australia’s vocational education and training sector as detailed by the National Register on Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Australia.

Students completing all assessment activities for these courses may be eligible to apply for RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) with a TAFE or other Registered Training Organisation.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process of your previous skills, knowledge and experience to meet the requirements of the course you are enrolled in. If you can clearly show through providing evidence that you have already gained the relevant skills or knowledge, you may be granted credit for specific unit/s of competency.


Evidence for RPL
that you submit must be current and may include: ·

  • Letters and references, including confirmation from your employers, clients or community groups
  • References from your paid or unpaid work experience
  • Samples of your work, including reports, articles or publication
