Skills recognition can allow you to get a qualification quicker and less costly.

Is this you?
- You have lots of skills and experience from jobs, courses and/or community work, but you don't have the 'piece of paper' to prove it.
- You want a qualification to help you get a promotion.
- You want to change jobs or careers but you're worried about how to prove your skills are valuable.
- You work in a trade, but you need a formal qualification to help you get on.
If so, skills recognition could put you on the fast track. You could get a vocational qualification, or part of a qualification, without having to study what you already know.
