Support and inspire children

This qualification reflects the role of early childhood educators who are responsible for designing and implementing curriculum in early childhood education and care services. In doing so they work to implement an approved learning framework within the requirements of the Education and Care Services National Regulations and the National Quality Standard. They may have responsibility for supervision of volunteers or other staff. Under the Education and Care Services National Law (2011) the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) publishes lists of approved early childhood education and care qualifications and information regarding regulatory requirements here: www.acecqa.gov.au

Workplace training:

There is a mandatory work placement requirement of 280 hours (minimum) to complete this course. Students are provided with the required to documents to support their Work Placement.

The work placement hours must be in an Australian regulated education and care service, which would include long day care, family daycare, preschools/kindergartens, occasional care and mobile.

Students will be required to complete:

The great customer service and prompt responses to my email enquiries helped me to choose Australian College as my preferred online training course. This was also the case while completing my course online and the trainers were especially helpful with their responses and feedback.
