Recognition of prior learning (RPL) for VET requirements in work placement

ACE 8051

Last Updated: 25 July 2018

Changes to ACE rules and procedures are occurring to reflect the Stronger HSC Standards reforms.

NESA strongly encourages all ACE users to review the Summary of Changes that may impact the below.

RPL may be granted for mandatory work placement requirements. Students’ outside employment (ie not under the auspices of the school) may be recognised towards the requirement for work placement in a VET course.


Credit transfer cannot be granted for work placement as no formal learning and assessment program is deemed to be equivalent.
