Have your say about training for childhood education and care in Australia

Public consultation for SkillsIQ’s review of the children’s education and care training package has been extended until 29 March 2019.

SkillsIQ’s website has the full details, including the draft revised certificate III and diploma in early childhood education and care. 

We encourage all interested parties, particularly approved providers of education and care services, to provide feedback via SkillsIQ’s online feedback forum.

The draft revised training package includes a number of significant changes, such as increasing the required number of work placement hours, and proposing that the certificate III in early childhood education and care be an entry requirement to the diploma of early childhood education and care.
