This Certificate III is designed to develop the range of skills for an Educator to work competently and support Lead Educators in the Early Childhood industry.
Learning will be conducted in the training centre for 3 hours of face to face training. These sessions are held on Wednesday nights from 5:30pm – 8:30pm. We have a campus on the Northside and Southside of Brisbane. VIEW EVENTS CALENDAR
There are 2 options for delivery of the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care:
- Workplace delivery
- Blended flexible options including RPL where appropriate and by application.
Both modes of learning are structured over a 1 – 2 year period, as per the Australian Qualifications Framework volume of learning indicators. A minimum of 1200 hours study is required to allow for sufficient understanding and application of the required skills and knowledge.
We use competency-based assessment for all assessment activities. Students prove competency with demonstrations of written knowledge and practical skills. We take timelines into consideration for practical skills and students must meet the criteria as deemed industry competent by the assessor.
Formative evidence will be assessed in the form of an Assessment Task Portfolio. The Assessment Task Portfolio uses several assessment tools to accommodate the student’s individual needs. The assessment types include:
- Written Assessments
- Reflective Questions
- Workplace Tasks
- Third Party reports
- Observation Tools
- Recognition of Prior Learning
There are no academic pre-requisites. However, we require students to take a Language, Literacy and Numeracy test at time of enrolment.
