Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Some examples of prior learning include:
Contact Care Academy QLD to see if RPL may be able to assist your study.
Individual support is available for students who face barriers to participating in accredited learning.
We have existing quality relationships with our local Facilities and Organisations which ensure our students are offered the best Work Placement opportunities possible.
We will arrange your Work Placement for you and do our best to place you with a Facility or Organisation close to home.
If you’re already working in the Industry, you can complete your Work Placement at your workplace if you choose.
Although Work Placement is unpaid, it provides fantastic work experience as well the confidence and contacts that will assist in gaining employment.
Your work shifts will be based on the standard shifts of the organisation you are placed. You may be expected to start as early as 6:00 am and work as late as 11:00 pm. Please consider your transport needs in relation to this.
