This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualized plan to provide person-centered support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason.
Work involves using discretion and judgement in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centered support.
This qualification provides the skills and knowledge for an individual to work primarily in residential facilities and disability support centers under direct or regular supervision within clearly defined organization guidelines and service plans.

With RPL we assess your competency based on formal, non-formal, informal learning or direct work experience based on the required skills of the course.
We use CT where you’ve completed units of study at another TAFE College or Registered Training Organisation that meet the requirements of another course. We grant credit according to the Certification, Issuing, and Recognition of Qualifications and Statements of Attainment. Assessing a CT is free.
If you’re eligible for RPL or CT you may be able to complete the course in a shorter duration with reduction to total course fees. Check your eligibility with us.
L – Portfolio is a collection of work, skills and interests (evidence) in an electronic format that showcases learning and experience over time.
When you think about your L-Portfolio and the types of evidence that it contains, it is important to think carefully about its purpose and intended audience.
Your L-Portfolio may contain all or some of the following:
Recognition of Prior Learning application:
Our RPL tool is in the form of an L-Portfolio, and allows students to put on record all their life experiences, interests and skills. Not only will their academic achievement be listed out, but also any life experiences that could potentially be taken into account for extra credit as Recognition of Prior Learning. For instance, an individual who has taken care of his or her bedridden parent has already gained valuable caregiver experience, which could be chalked up against practical expertise and added to their resume.
This L-Portfolio could be sent to employers when applying for work, to universities while applying for extra credits through RPL, or in any other ways to market their expertise.
Showcase/Professional L Portfolios
These L-Portfolios are used as a way to demonstrate (showcase) the highlights of a student’s academic and professional career.
These portfolios are typically created by a student as part of a course as a way to demonstrate learning and the learning process. These portfolios are often shared with other students to elicit peer feedback. Learning portfolios support the idea of formative feedback as an essential part of the learning process.
