Why turning your experience into a Qualification is a Smart Career move

When people come to us to undertake an RPL they often lack confidence and awareness of the skills they have developed in their career.  Being able to award them with a Diploma or Certificate at our Graduation and see the personal satisfaction their families pride is incredibly rewarding  Miranda Hamilton

Consolidating years of experience into a formal, recognised qualification should be your next career move.

Why, because it’s a smart one – A qualification is currency.

Many large organisations, from mining, construction, banking and government highly regard qualifications because they demonstrate a benchmark of expertise. They are often a mandatory requirement of many positions.


  • It formalises your skills into legitimate evidence.
  • It can improve your pay.
  • It can open doors to greater job opportunity.
  • It can empower you to go after your career dreams.
  • It can be meaningful and give you a sense of achievement and confidence.

If you have been working for some years and progressed through hard work and tenure, you are likely to have developed skills that you may not be necessarily selling yourself well to future or current employers.


Regardless of industry and technical skills, most people as they progress in their careers develop interpersonal skills and skills in one or more areas of Business, Leadership and Management, Project Management , Human Resources experience.  These Management Skills are transferable across many different industries from banking and finance, government, training, mining and primary industries and are highly valued.
