Default RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) ACS Project Report

Hello All,

Project Report format for RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) asks for start date & end date.

I am bit confused whether one should enlist entire employment period in a particular company or period for only particular project during the employment. Please note that I know the meaning of "Project" but I am asking with reference to specific situation.

For Business Analyst providing production support, it is not necessary that there is always some new project going on in the company. Some companies have global presence and support implies huge & diversified workload. In such scenario, even in absence of specific project, production support on day-to-day basis poses new challanges. Each incident-issue-resolution can be different and Analyst is still required to use all ICT skills and knowledge for resolving the incidents, suggesting workarounds, deploying fixes, etc. Does detailing those issues/resolutions count? Is production support considered project? Is it possible to get sample report (Report - not template) just to get an idea as to what is required?

Thanks

I am also looking for a sample, just to get an idea of how deep one has to go.

Hi,
I'm not willing to share my own report, but absolutely willing to help if I can.
The start&end dates on the project report form refer to the specific report.
I hope you can find two projects that you took part in in the past 5 years. If not, then some major incidents that involved the participation of several people can be called projects. Production support is usually not a project, but there must have been significant changes of major issues with the systems, where you had to work as a team to deliver the results. These can be called projects even if they were called change requests or incident tickets. I would say if there was a scope, a deadline, requirements elicitation, functional and/or technical specification, a deliverable (and so on and so on) then yes, you might call it a project.
But really, if there were real projects then stick to those.

The important thing is that your role was that of a Business / Systems analyst and you can prove it.

Mine was very-very detailed (25 pages), with heaps of technical and professional details. In the RPL form, you have to be very specific about the project in overall, and your role especially. As teamwork is usually present, it is unavoidable that you write about the work of other people, but never forget to clarify what was done by you!

Good luck!

Thanks for the clarification. I have one more question
Are smaller projects of one year worth adding? I read somewhere that the duration should be 2 years of the project.

Could you also throw light on your case in this matter and let us know whether your assessment is completed to give us more comfort that smaller projects are worth adding.
Sincerely thanks

As far as possible try to add the latest projects. Duration of project is some thing which i didnt give much emphasis on. The main thing here is that you can list only 2 projects and in those ensure that the roles and responsibilities are listed out as per the ANZSCO code that you are applying for.

Thanks, Arvind, for quick clarification.
I have started writing RPL and it seems taking too long. Already covered 15 pages with just inital topic and first project.
Lets see.

Thanks again
Cdhami
