- Evidence for RPL includes questioning (where your assessor holds a one-to-two-hour telephone interview with you and ask questions verbally),
- Finished products (you may have items you have produced in your work),
- Third party reports (including references and citing examples of your work ability relating to the standards),
- Documents (such as relevant qualifications/transcripts, project plans and reports, minutes of meetings, correspondence, resources developed),
- Or anything else that you or your assessor can think of that is relevant and proves your competence.
What happens after the evidence is gathered?
Once you have submitted your evidence that was agreed upon during your interview, your assessor reviews it against the units of competency and makes an assessment decision based on your evidence being:
- Valid: Our assessor must be assured that you have the skills, knowledge and attributes described in unit of competency and associated assessment requirements.
- Sufficient: Our assessor must be assured that the quality, quantity and relevance of your evidence enables a judgement to be made of your competency.
- Authentic: Our assessor must be assured that the presented evidence is your own work.
- Current: Our assessor must be assured that the assessment evidence demonstrates current competency. This requires the assessment evidence to be from the present or the very recent past, i.e. within the past 2-3 years.
