What will I learn?

The nationally recognised Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care is designed for students who want to make a difference in the lives of children (aged 0 to 5), as a childcare support worker or early childhood educator.

You will work with children during a critical time in their development and gain the essential skills and knowledge to have a positive impact on their future.

Our extensive industry partnerships enable you to learn in a real workplace with experts in the field. You will learn how to provide safe, meaningful and inclusive education in a fun and playful setting, and how to honour children’s voice, culture and rights.
