Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

 

Pathways Psychology Institute offers Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) to all students. Students granted RPL are able to obtain credit for the competencies gained prior to enrolment.

 

Recognition of Prior Learning may be demonstrated through various methods, some of which may be the following:

  • Participation in exactly the same or modified version of the assessment the student would be required to complete as part of the full course. (Include course transcripts and subject descriptions, with application).
  • Assessment based on a portfolio of evidence.
  • Direct observation of the skill/competence RPL is sought for. 
  • Provision of evidence of the student’s work drawn from the workplace, social, community or other setting in which the student applies the skills/competence RPL is sought for.
  • Documented testimonials from employers or teachers of learning, skills or competence.
  • Curriculum Vitae outlining the relevant experience.

 

Applications may include a combination of the methods listed above.

 

Students wanting to be granted Recognition of Prior Learning are to submit a Recognition of Prior Learning Form along with evidence and certified copies of relevant documentation with the PPI Application for Enrolment Form. All documentation needs to be provided at the same time to enable Pathways Psychology Institute to process the application. Applications for RPL will not be processed once the course commences.

 

Please note that a Justice of the Peace should certify all document copies submitted, as part of an application for RPL. Alternatively, students may bring the original documents to Pathways Psychology Institute where a member of our staff will mark the copies as verified copies.

 

Where an RPL is granted the status on the academic transcript will show as RPL. CCM reserves the right to contact the issuing body to verify qualifications. Publication

 

Please contact us for further information regarding Recognition of Prior Learning.

 

Complaints & Grievances

 

Pathways Psychology Institute is committed to providing an effective, efficient, timely, fair and confidential academic grievance handling procedure for all students.

 

Academic matters include:

  • Decisions on recognised prior learning
  • Selection and admission decisions
  • Academic progress,
  • Assessment matters
  • Course content or structure of academic program &
  • Nature of teaching

 

Grievances moves through a series of processes beginning with an informal process through to a formal written grievance presented to the academic panel.

 

It is our aim at Pathways Psychology Institute to resolve all grievances and complaints during the informal stages.

 

Informal Grievance Procedure

 

When a student or applicant has an academic complaint, they should discuss the matter in the first instance with administrative staff or with the relevant teacher as soon as possible. Most grievances are satisfactorily resolved at this stage.

 

If resolution has not been attained at this stage, the complaint/grievance moves through to the formal stages.

 

Please contact us for further information regarding Complaints and Grievances.
