Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

 

Are you eligible for RPL?​​​​

The Tensegrity Training Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process recognises the quality of training received through industry based courses and that experienced and competent Pilates instructors may apply for RPL to formalise their qualifications.

Why should you RPL ?​​​​

Graduates from non government accredited Pilates teacher training courses can apply to Tensegrity Training for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) to gain the Nationally Recognised 10596NAT Diploma of Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology and/or 52728WA Certificate IV in Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology.

The 52728WA Certificate IV in Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology is a pre-requisite for entry to 10596NAT Diploma of Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology and therefore all students who wish to enter the Diploma - only must hold the  52728WA Certificate IV in Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology  or provide evidence of an existing Certificate IV in Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology via the RPL process.

How much does it cost ?​​​​

The RPL application fee is $800 for the Integrated Diploma (10596NAT) and  $500 for the Certificate IV (52728WA) only. Additional costs may be involved based on your experience and the 'gaps' between your previous training and the course(s) you would like to obtain by RPL.   We find this is most commonly in the areas of marketing *(ARTMAR401) which is a key Unit of Competency in the Certificate IV and Somatics *(PILEADV503) which is a Unit of Competency in the Diploma.

What steps are required to start the RPL process ?

  • Each RPL application is assessed in a 'case by case' manner, starting with an interview
  • Knowledge will be assessed by interview and also by submitted documentation of previous qualification(s) and experience
  • The candidate must provide evidence of their ability to competently undertake a range of contemporary exercises from the Pilates exercise repertoire in a Pilates studio/workplace
  • The candidate must provide evidence of having instructed at least 2 different client groups in a Pilates environment. This instruction of clients will need to have been undertaken over a period of time and include examples of Matwork, equipment and small apparatus programming and delivery
  • A statutory declaration confirming 200 hours work experience in a Pilates Studio and 150 hours of personal practice is required to satisfy all requirements for attainment of 10596NAT Diploma of Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology.
