CHC50113 DIPLOMA IN EARLY CHILDHOO EDUCATION AND CARE

Early Childhood Educators assist in caring for the social, emotional, physical and educational needs of infants and young children in various care settings. Early Childhood Educators can have a profound influence on a child’s wellbeing and development especially in the years of 0-5. Qualifications in Early Childhood Education and Care focus on the core skills, knowledge and experience required to effectively assess the strengths and interests of children designing meaningful experiences that facilitate the child’s growth and development. This qualification reflects the role of early childhood educators who are responsible for designing and implementing curriculum in early childhood education and care services. In doing so, they work to implement an approved learning framework within the requirements of the Education and Care Services National Regulations and the National Quality Standard. They may have responsibility for supervision of volunteers or other staff.

Pathways

Successful completion of this program may assist students to gain entry into further study programs and / or contribute towards study credits.

Entry Requirements

Domestic students must:
 Be at least 18 years of age.
 Have completed Year 12 or equivalent.
 Participate in a course entry interview to determine suitability for the course and student needs.
 Have language, literacy, and numeracy (LLN) skill sufficient to complete the course, for example, to read materials relevant to the course, participate in discussions and roleplays and apply numerical concepts such as time management. This will be tested through a LLN assessment as part of the course entry process. Students will need to achieve ACSF level 2 for reading, writing, numeracy, and oral communication to enter the course.

All students are required to participate in an interview with the Academic Manager or their delegate to check their suitability & capacity to undertake the course. The interview may be in person or via the phone/skype. Have language, literacy and numeracy skills to read and comprehend learning materials and perform tasks related to recording care routines, maintaining education and care notes, providing written feedback to parents, recording medication and nutritional information, interpreting workplace policy and procedure, reporting hazards, preparing child development sessions. Students will need to be reasonably physically fit as the role of an educator involves a variety of tasks that require a reasonable amount of physical activity, such as personal care of children, lifting and cleaning. Educators spend time sitting on the floor with children and on small chairs and also need to be able to get down to the child’s level to obtain eye contact. Students need to be able to relate to children and their families and have a keen interest to assist children to learn, have good problem-solving skills, sound literacy and numeracy skills, be enthusiastic, tactful, patient and with a sense of humour. Long day care centres are open usually between 7am to 7.00pm so a willingness to work outside of standard hours is desirable.

Subsidised training eligibility

AUSTRALIAN GLOBAL COLLEGE delivers government subsidised training, including the NSW government training under the Smart and Skilled program.

To access government-subsidised training in AUSTRALIAN GLOBAL COLLEGE, including fee exemptions or concessions, you must be:

  1. an Australian citizen or meet the criteria of being an Australian permanent resident, a humanitarian visa holder, or a New Zealand citizen;
  2. aged 15 years or older;
  3. no longer be at school;
  4. living or working in NSW; or
  5. registered as a NSW apprentice or new entrant trainee.

When you enrol in a government subsidised AUSTRALIAN GLOBAL COLLEGE course you will be required to pay the Smart and Skilled student fee, unless you qualify for a fee exemption or fee concession.

If you are not a resident of NSW or working within NSW, you have the option of paying the fee-for-service course fee.

Eligibility for Smart and Skilled – NSW government subsidised training – is available to humanitarian visa holders, and has been extended to individuals who hold a bridging visa, temporary humanitarian stay visa or temporary humanitarian concern visa commencing training on or after 1 January 2017.

How the fees are applied

When you enrol in either Fee for Service training or government subsidised training, the fee you are charged is for the whole qualification. This means you’ll know the total cost of your course before you start.

The student fees and applicable charges are required to be paid, at enrolment or by scheduled instalment date/s, either by yourself (the student enrolled), the nominated ‘third party’ on behalf of yourself (for example, your employer), or as identified within a contract for delivery of AUSTRALIAN GLOBAL COLLEGE training.

The fee you pay, the fee exemption or Smart & Skilled Fee-Free Scholarship you receive, only covers your first attempt at your course, and the first attempt at any unit of competency within your course. If you want to repeat a unit of competency you should discuss this with Administration staff as soon as possible.
