Early Childhood Education and Care is an expanding sector for those with a passion for the care and education of young children up to the age of 5 years.

  • Learn to interact and foster the development of young children
  • Work within legal requirements
  • Ensure children's health and safety is prioritised
  • Work with children of different backgrounds and cultures

Entrance requirements for traineeships

You must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation to study an apprenticeship or traineeship. 

In a traineeship you also gain hands-on skills and work experience, and improve your employment prospects, while earning a wage. On successful completion you will gain a nationally recognised qualification which can lead to rewarding career options. The difference between a traineeship and an apprenticeship is that a traineeship can be either a full time or part time employment based training arrangement, usually for a nominal duration of 12 months or more, generally in a non-trade related area. 

To find out how to arrange a traineeship and study at South Metropolitan TAFE, please contact the Jobs and Skills Centre closest to you.
