Structured classroom learning

All classes are delivered by qualified, industry experienced Trainer Assessors who work closely with students to optimise their learning experience. We simulate activities and tasks that are required to be performed within the workplace so that students gain confidence before working in an early education centre or service.

Students attend class one day per week at the college, as well as attend an ACECQA approved service to receive practical training and experience. Vocational placement hours are in addition to theory class attendance and are usually completed in shool holidays. A current working with children check is required for work placement when you are 18 years of age.
