We offer Early Childhood Education and Care Certificate III and Diploma Courses resulting in current and relevant qualifications that have been developed specifically in line with industry and regulatory requirements.

Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care

Holding or working towards a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care is now a minimum requirement for working in the early child care sector (including long day care, family day care, kindergartens and out of school care services).  Our Certificate III is a nationally recognised qualification that will equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience required to work as an educator in a regulated early child care education service. Our course complies with the Australian Quality Training Framework and the requirements of the Department of Training and Workforce Development.

Upon completion of this qualification students may wish to further their learning by going on to complete their Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care.

Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care

A Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care is the minimum qualification requirement to be a director or to manage an early child care service in most states of Australia. Our Diploma will allow you the potential to move into these supervisory or management roles. We will prepare you to plan, evaluate and implement curriculum, establish safe and healthy care environments and supervise other staff.

Please see our RTO Student Handbook for more details.
