Veteran Recognition of Prior Learning – Tertiary Support

ClosedGrant Closed: 16th of August 2023 - 9:00 pm Value: $75,000 to $150,000 Run By: Department of Veterans Affairs Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=a8a22ebe-73dd-405f-ab42-088beffda766

The purpose of the program is to support veterans seeking to start in tertiary education by supporting Australian universities to provide several initiatives to enable a smoother transition from ADF service. This assistance will be targeted at Australian universities to adapt and apply existing tertiary credit mapping frameworks or to adapt, expand or establish direct or assisted entry, or RPL pathways.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • enable a smoother entry to university for veterans who may require additional support to achieve a successful education outcome
  • provide support to universities to establish or enhance veteran RPL frameworks and support for veterans pursuing further study within tertiary institutions
  • ensure RPL and support for veterans entering study at tertiary institutions are sustained beyond the grant funding period.

The intended outcomes of the program are that:

  • veterans are assisted into tertiary education by providing an avenue where their existing skills and experience are recognised as part of the entry pathways
  • organisations adapt, expand or establish direct or assisted entry pathways and study support programs for veterans
  • organisations share knowledge from their RPL programs with other tertiary or education facilities about supporting veterans with entry to their universities.
