    Depending on the industry sector you have worked in, you may or may not have documentary evidence available. This should not deter you from seeking RPL as the Assessor will work with you during the RPL process.

    You will also need to supply contact details of one or two work referees who can confirm your skills in the industry. Think about who the best person to confirm your skill level would be.

    Think about current or recent supervisors or employers who have observed your work and who would be able to confirm your previous work skills and experience. The Assessor will need to contact them.

    You can speak with your Assessor about other ways you can show your skills for the sector in which you are seeking recognition.

    These could include letters from employers, records of any training courses or professional development sessions attended, employers or clients in related industries or government agencies, acknowledgements, workplace forms (as long as there are no confidentially issues – see below) or any other relevant documents.
