Kick start an early education career as a trainee

Completing an early education traineeship with One Tree is the first step to a rewarding career in early education. Our in-house training organisation allows you to work and study at the same time. So, there’s no need to take time off work to get qualified. We also offer school-based traineeships for high school students in some communities.

Our trainees get on-the-job training while working towards a Certificate III or Diploma in Early Education and Care. And our trainers come to you – so you can complete your early education traineeship wherever you are (we even come to some of the most remote locations in WA and the NT).

Once you’re a qualified educator we can support you as you work towards a Diploma, or you can chart a steady course doing what you love.

What you’ll do as a One Tree trainee

We’ll be with you from day one. Our trainers will help you with everything, from making course payments to planning your next early education career move. We’ll visit you regularly, help you to understand each unit, and give you training on and off the floor. Our trainers are well known for their support, so they’ll always be there to answer questions. Plus, there will be plenty of chances to put theory into practice as you work alongside a talented team of One Tree educators.

I can’t thank my teacher enough

I've nearly finished my diploma through One Tree’s RTO. My teacher Danielle has given me nothing but 100% of her support. I can’t thank her enough for helping me and having so much faith in me! The flexibility and support that was provided in my studies really helped me to finish the work!
