Fearless RPL for Assessors

21 May 2024
Online via Zoom Webinar

Providers have advised ASQA that

"Compliant RPL assessment is difficult to undertake and not cost effective"

and ASQA have said

"We are very concerned about RPL practices not being as rigorous as they need to be"

Claire Bunkum, Director, Performance Monitoring, ASQA, 2023 National VET Conference.


Many assessors advise students that they are better off doing the course than applying for RPL because it all seems too hard. Oftentimes, as Assessors, we feel overwhelmed with how to interpret the evidence.

When it comes to RPL, it’s not about the quantity of evidence the applicant provides; it is about guiding them to provide quality evidence. Your role as the assessor is much more significant than a 'marker and shuffler' of paper.

Welcome to "Fearless RPL for Assessors", where we engage with these challenges and provide you with the tools you need to implement RPL in your RTO.

Drawing on the concept of the Three Wise Monkeys, we encourage the adoption of a Speak, See, Hear Quality model when it comes to RPL Assessment.

In this brand new webinar Angela will demystify the RPL process and address the issues that have commonly made RPL a tedious experience for assessors and students.

This PD has been designed specifically for RPL Assessors - to further develop an understanding of how RPL can be undertaken confidently and how to having faith in the evidence collected. You'll walk away with the keys to providing a client service that is positive and rewarding for the applicant.

15 minutes of this 90-minute session will be allocated specifically to answering your RPL questions.

Let's remove the fear from RPL!

If you are an assessor, also responsible for develping the actual RPL Tools/Kit - you may also like to consider bundling our Fearless RPL for Developers PD (includes our RPL Kit valued at $880)
