Compiling a Portfolio of Evidence

In order to establish entitlement to RPL/RCC, an applicant needs to provide substantial and concrete evidence, measured against specific Units of Competence. This may include: 1. 2. Thinking about role/s within the range of programs an applicant has covered in work claimed as relevant. Thinking about specific learner or client groups the applicant has worked with (who the learners/candidates/clients were, what they were learning, being assessed against or the specific services provided to them, where and when the learning/assessment/service provision took place, why the learning/assessment/service provision was taking place, how often these events occurred. Thinking about experiences with assisting learner/candidates/clients in their learning/assessment/service needs (how the applicant facilitated their learning/assessment or provided specific services). Based on this experience and evidence, deciding which Unit(s) for which the applicant thinks it possible to claim either whole or partial RPL/RCC. Considering the different evidence able to be provided to an RPL/RCC assessor to support a claim. Starting to collect and organise the evidence against unit/s criteria. It is important to be strategic in this as one piece of evidence may relate to more than one performance criteria across more than one Unit of Competence).

· · ·

The workplace (job experience or in-house training) Formal training sessions (qualifications or formal training courses) Life experience (volunteer programs, community involvement etc)

All evidence provided must meet the rules of evidence which are:

· · · ·

Authenticity - is it the applicant's own work? Validity ­ how does it relate to the evidence requirements of the Unit/s claimed? Currency ­ does it show recent use of skills and knowledge? Sufficiency - is there enough evidence to show consistent use of the skills and knowledge to grant recognition?

When the assessor is confident that all the criteria have been sufficiently satisfied, recognition for the unit(s) will be granted.
