Acecqa – The Australian Children's Education & Care Quality Authority

The Education and Care Services National Law gives ACECQA responsibility for determining if qualifications are equivalent to the approved educator qualifications under the National Quality Framework.

As an educator, if your education and care qualification is not listed on the approved qualifications list you can apply to ACECQA to have it assessed for equivalence. This will allow you to work in education and care service in Australia.

Course providers can apply to ACECQA to have their education programs assessed and added to ACECQA’s published list of approved qualifications.
