General resources


Students can upload evidence for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or assessments from a computer, mobile phone or tablet with SkillsLocker for their teacher to review. Your work supervisor can sign off your evidence directly on your device before you send it to your teacher.
Ask your teachers if SkillsLocker is used for your course. SkillsLocker is available via your Student Portal. Sign in to SkillsLocker using your TAFE NSW username and password. You do not need to download an app but we recommend you review the System requirements before you use it.
