ATCWA will systematically and appropriately recognise course credit that is granted for recognition of prior learning and credit transfer within the ESOS framework. ATCWA is proactive in granting course credit for recognition of prior learning and credit transfer to students with suitable prior qualifications, learning or experience.

Credit Transfer (CT)

Credit Transfer is the recognition of any equivalent study an international student has previously undertaken at another Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

RPL means receiving recognition of a competency (or competencies) as a result of any previous learning acquired, regardless of where or how the learning was acquired. The RPL assessment process may assess a student’s formal, non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual meets the requirements specified in the training package or VET accredited courses.

To apply for recognition of prior learning or credit transfer students must submit an application form along with all documentary evidence to ATCWA. Recognition of prior learning and credit transfer may reduce the duration of a student’s studies.

Recognition of prior learning, credit transfer and/or course credit policy & procedure:

ATCWA will ensure all students have met the course entry requirements of their enrolled course. As part of enrolment process, all students are required to sit for a LLN test to ensure the student has sufficient LLN capabilities to complete the course.

Students with LLN difficulties will be provided additional learning support by an appropriate staff member at ATCWA. The LLN support will be based on the students individual special needs and availability. ATCWA will provide the required assistance to all students as per its registration requirements.

This support will include:

  • Identifying particular requirements (such as literacy, numeracy, English language or physical capabilities) learners would need to complete each course, and developing strategies to make support available where gaps are identified. This may include providing: Language, Literacy & Numeracy (LLN) support and/or additional tutorials.
  • Other mechanisms, such as assistance in using computing technology for completion of assessments.

ATCWA ensures that it only accepts the enrolment of international students who are eligible for release or have completed at least six (6) months of their principal course of study. In accordance with National Code 2018 student.

ATCWA Transfer between Registered Providers Policy and Procedure outlines the circumstances in which transfer of students from other Providers will be assessed in accordance with the National Code. ATCWA will assess each request on an individual student basis, taking into account all supporting documentation submitted.

Under the transfer student requirements (ESOS Act), if the student has completed more than six months of their principal course of study, the student as per ATCWA does not need to apply for a release but they must apply for a cancellation of their enrolment.
