Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

We recognise that some people wishing to undertake the Psychotherapy Training Program may have already completed formal training in psychotherapy and have practice experience. A Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process may enable entry with advanced standing for suitably qualified applicants to the second year of the SPIA Psychotherapy Training Program.

To obtain RPL you will need to make a formal application to have your prior learning assessed and pay a fee to cover expenses involved in the assessment process. You will be required to provide specific evidence of your prior learning in each subject area. A qualified RPL assessor will evaluate your application. The assessor will be available to provide advice about putting together a folio of this evidence.
