Pathways

Transfer of Credit

Do you excel in your job but have no qualification to back it up? We can help you get qualified through our Recognition of Prior (RPL) Learning Tool.

While many people have gained work and life experience equivalent to that of formal study, they don't have that formal qualification to substantiate it. RPL allows you to use your current knowledge and experience towards gaining a recognised qualification through Informal Transfer of Credit.

The Process

If you are interested in applying, you can do so by emailing your profile through to: headstart@wintec.ac.nz.

There are four main areas you need to cover in your profile:
  1. Education History
  2. Experience Information
  3. Work experience Info
  4. Other evidence

Your profile will be forwarded to the relevant Team Manager to look at and determine if you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning. Once this has been determined, a consultation meeting will be arranged between yourself and the Team Manager. There is a $75 fee for this consultation. At the consultation, the Team Manager will discuss which modules they believe you have the experience to gain Informal Transfer of Credit for and also what documentation you will need to supply.

You will then need to put together the required documentation and send it through to us. The Team Manager will assess the documentation and advise if what has been supplied is sufficient. If sufficient information is provided to gain Informal Transfer of Credit, there will be a charge of $25 per credit which will need to be paid prior to any Informal Transfer of Credit being issued.
