Study a Childcare Education and Support Course

The child care industry has come a long way over the past few decades. With increasing demands and higher standards for child care facilities, there is a growing demand for dedicated professionals with the right education, skills and qualifications who, not only look after children, but help guide their development during those crucial formative years. If you like babies and children and have been considering a career in this competitive yet rewarding industry, our childcare courses online can help get you there.

These child care courses are nationally recognised certificate and diploma qualifications. The legal minimum qualification requirement varies from state to state and role to role but in most states, child care centres require a room supervisor or a senior manager to have a minimum Diploma qualification. Courses include practical experience opportunities, so you will be able to practice what you’ve learned on site.

If you are interested in working with older children, we also offer CHC30213 Certificate III in Education Support. This course is designed to prepare you for work in a classroom setting, as a teacher’s aide, educational assistant, or other similar role.
