UK/NZ Lateral Transfers

Were you enlisted in the ADF through the Overseas Lateral

Recruitment Scheme? Did the ADF only recognise some of your

training or experience that matched their ‘critical skills shortage?

If you’re ex-British Forces your full service and City & Guilds qualifications can be transferred into Australian qualifications via recognition of prior learning (RPL).


For the Kiwi’s, your NZQA qualifications match the AQF and can also be mapped via RPL.

We offer the following qualifications groups for former and current military personnel RPL assessment:

  • Leadership and Management

  • Security and Risk Management

  • Project Management

  • Work Health and Safety

  • Business

  • Emergency Management

  • Logistics

  • Government Security and Border Protection.

What evidence will you need to provide?

During the initial free assessment, you will only need to supply:

  • ADO Service Record long (PmKeys / DefenceOne full version, not self-service prints).

  • Foreign Certificate of Service.

  • Foreign civilian qualifications.

  • UK Testimonial.


If you transitioned out of the ADF more than 5 years ago, your resume or similar information to cover your post-discharge employment will be required.
