Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care CHC30121
This qualification reflects the role of educators in early childhood education and care who work in regulated children’s education and care services in Australia. They support children’s wellbeing, and development in the context of an approved learning framework.
Educators use a range of well-developed skills and knowledge using discretion and judgment when carrying out their work in the context of established policies and procedures. They may work independently or under the guidance of others, though in some contexts that guidance may not be on-site.
Early childhood educators work in long day care centres, family day care, pre-schools or kindergartens.
- Prospective students are required to complete a Language Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) assessment and a Pre-Training Interview, administered by and to the satisfaction of the registered Training Organisation and be at least 18 years of age.
- You must have good word processing and email skills as well as the ability to download and upload documents and information.
We offer students the flexibility of online or face to face delivery (depending on the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) & delivery method chosen).
All assessments must be completed, all students will require a personal computer, with access to the Internet to successfully complete their studies. Assessment methods allow for the gathering of sufficient quality evidence about the student’s performance. Methods used include question and answer, observation and demonstration, and case study.
To achieve this qualification, the individual must have completed 160 hours of work placement in an approved registered education and care service provider facility. Evidence provided by the supervisor will contribute to assessment of the candidate’s ability to work at this level. Students are required to find their own practical placement if online delivery is selected or with assistance provided if face to face classroom delivery is selected; however, all students will be provided with the Host employment documents for this purpose.
Students must have a current National Police Check and a Working with Children Check prior to attending placement.
Students can go into a range of employment or further study options, including the CHC50121 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care. Occupations may include, Childhood Educator Assistant, Outside School Hours Aide, and Preschool Assistant.
