ACCCO has been training students working in education and care for the past 24 years.  During this time, ACCCO has seen several changes in the training package and has negotiated these changes successfully.  Whilst we are waiting on the finalisation of the new training package, ACCCCO will continue to operate “business as usual” to meet the needs of our students and the industry. 


ACCCO will provide updates as soon as information on the release of the new qualifications becomes available which we envisage to be in the near future.    Every student will be supported during this transition process to ensure their individual learning needs are met and that the impact to training is minimal.
