The aim of this project is to develop skills recognition tools against the current CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support, to assist in identifying and recognising existing skills of the workforce across the sector.

The toolkit will provide information and resources to support eligible workers in the aged care and disability support sectors to develop RPL applications and portfolios of evidence. Participating Registered Training Organisations (RTO) will be supported with professional development opportunities and the provision of tools for assessors to assist them to conduct high quality, nationally consistent RPL determinations.

The HSSO will work with VET and Human Services Subject Matter Experts to develop the RPL toolkit which will include:

  • Candidate RPL Guide
  • Employer Evidence Guide
    • Assessment Guide for Assessors including:
    • high-level assessment plan for each unit of competency;
    • Mapping documentation for assessment evidence and questions against the qualification requirements of relevant units;
    • Professional Development in RPL Application.


The toolkit resources for the pathways have been drafted and are currently undergoing a technical review by stakeholders.

In addition, the HSSO are working to develop an assessor portal based on the ReadySkills platform. This is due for release by the end of May 2022.

Next Steps

The HSSO is working with stakeholders to identify employers and RTO’s for pilot sites starting in June 2022.
