Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care

National ID: CHC30113 | State ID: J587

 

Early Childhood Education and Care is an expanding sector for those with a genuine interest and passion in the care and education of young children up to the age of 5 years. The sector is demanding higher qualifications and training from educators in this field to ensure consistently high standards of education and care for children placed in these services. This can be achieved by completing the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care.

You'll learn how to interact and foster the development of the children while working within legal requirements and ensuring the children's health and safety are not at risk. You will work closely with children from different backgrounds and cultures and provide care and support for them in various child care situations.

As part of this qualification you will undertake work placement where you will be able to apply the skills and knowledge you have learned.

Students are required to obtain a Working with Children Check before attending work placement.

This Qualification is also available as a Traineeship. To study as a Trainee, you must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation. Please see the Apprenticeships/Traineeships section for more information
