ACECQA has determined that registered/accredited Primary Teachers can be recognised as an 'equivalent Early Childhood Teacher' if they also complete a CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care. This Early Childhood Teacher Bridging Program (ECTBP) has been developed by the Department of Education (DET) to assist with this requirement allowing registered Primary School Teachers to have as many of their skills and knowledge recognised as possible. Through the ECTBP, eligible students only complete training and assessment in areas that haven't been completed as part of their Primary Teacher qualification.
ACCCO is a pre-qualified supplier approved by the Queensland Government to deliver publicly funded training and assessment. Please read the Department of Education and Training Student Fact sheet here.
Primary Teachers are eligible to enrol in the ECTBP if they hold all of the following:
ACECQA will also use the above to determine eligibility as an equivalent Early Childhood Teacher.
For all information regarding ACECQA's recognition, please see: http://www.acecqa.gov.au/Recognition-as-an-equivalent-early-childhood-teacher
If a person is eligible for funding under the Teacher Bridging Program, the Queensland Government will subsidise the costs of their accredited training, although a student contribution fee will be required.

The following students are entitled to the concession rate on course fees:
Please note: Proof of eligibility for concession must be demonstrated prior to the commencement of training. If the concession is valid for the full enrolment period, then all eligible units commenced within that period attract the concession rate. If the concession is valid for part of the enrolment period, then only eligible units commenced prior to the expiry of the concession attract the concession rate.
RPL is an assessment only process for experienced workers who are seeking formal recognition of their existing skills and knowledge. Read more
Credit transfer (sometimes known as advanced standing) is awarded when a student has completed the units required for a qualification at another Registered Training Organisation. This may reduce the amount of time it will take you to gain a qualification, and reduce the overall cost. ACCCO provides credit transfer free of charge. Read more
