Welcome to the Diploma of Community Services - 5 Day RPL

Perth:            30th April - 4th May 2018

Alphacrucis College is excited to offer the RPL Diploma of Community Services, a unique program designed to equip people to think and act differently regarding community transformation. 

5 Day RPL - People with community services experience have the opportunity to obtain an accredited Diploma of Community Services by participating in a 5 day RPL. This RPL mode draws upon your many years of community engagement ministry experience and provides quality gap training.

The Diploma of Community Services is endorsed by the ACC Community Engagement Director, Pastor Paul Bartlett, and is based on the TGIM Community Engagement Model, outlining the latest best practise in community engagement. It is specifically designed for experienced community workers and those who have experience in church based community services work. 

Applying for RPL

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process through which the skills, knowledge and experience that you already have may count towards the achievement of a nationally recognised qualification. Sometimes also referred to as 'skills recognition', RPL involves a formal assessment process, focusing on your ability to demonstrate that you have the required level of skills, knowledge and experience to meet the requirements for competency in the unit/s within the qualification.

You will join a supportive cohort of experienced people from a variety of community services to share best practice and learn from one another. You will also receive teaching and input from the best trainers and some of the great leaders in our movement.

The Perth class will be held at AC Perth campus at Victoria Park.

There are three simple steps for enrolling:

Step 1 – Application

Complete the RPL Application Form, providing as much information of your previous experience in community engagement as you can.

Documents required with your application:

- Birth Certificate or Passport
- CV (including details of 5+ years of community experience)


Step 2 – Gather the Evidence

Once it has been determined you have enough skills to progress in this process, you will be requested to complete:

1. The RPL Evidence Checklist. An assessor will review the information you have provided. Be sure to provide as much detail as possible. As assessor may contact you to discuss any items of evidence provided. You may also provide additional information to help support your checklist.

2. The Reference template. Send this template to your referees to complete.

Step 3 – One Week Intensive

If the appropriate evidence has been submitted, you will be invited to attend a one-week intensive to finalise the RPL process. During this week you will hear from leading practitioners in Community Engagement, Ethics and Leadership. The final pieces of evidence will be collected during this week.

AC will provide lunch, morning and afternoon tea for the five-day duration, commencing with a orientation dinner on Monday night.

We look forward to seeing you.
