Qualifications and Credentials

Credentials and  qualifications

We bring together business and university learning to provide flexible and tailored measurement and recognition solutions.

Through Professional Practice Credentials and vocational and higher education qualifications, we enable organisations to build, assess and recognise their people’s skills, knowledge and achievements.

In keeping with our customised learning approach and the 70:20:10 model, we can map and align our Credentials and qualifications with your organisation’s learning and development.

Our Professional Practice Credentials provide organisations with a new way to measure and recognise the key capabilities of their people in the workplace.

As a registered training organisation, we deliver tailored vocational training solutions in alignment with the nationally recognised VET framework. We also offer pathways to other Deakin University qualifications, including the new and innovative professional practice degrees. 


We believe that learning and experience in the workplace deserves to be recognised.

It can be hard for an organisation to objectively identify and assess the skills of their people. To solve this problem, our Professional Practice Credentials offer a new and innovative way to measure workforce capabilities, increase employee engagement and ensure competitiveness in today’s ever-changing environment.

Professional Practice Credentials provide tangible proof of an individual's professional capabilities, from soft skills (such as problem-solving and communication) to professional expertise skills (such as digital marketing and data analytics). Backed by Deakin University and based on current industry standards and aligned to the Australian Qualifications Framework, Credentials provide an independent measure and validation of your people’s capabilities.

Beyond providing a tool for assessment of skills, Professional Practice Credentials can help you to more effectively allocate and evaluate training programs for your business. This means your people are receiving the right training and you can assess its effectiveness to ensure change of behaviour and return on investment for your business. They can also be matched to position descriptions across your organisation, helping to drive investment and shape business strategy. If you’re putting together a project team and you need people who are strong on teamwork and problem-solving, the credentialing process can guide you to select the right people for the task.
