What do other students think about Early Childhood Education and Care?

It was exciting to be offered employment so soon. The Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care really supported my industry knowledge and understanding. Having a trainer who works in the industry to guide us through real-life scenarios in a practical and fun way enabled me to feel less anxious when completing my work experience. I also completed my First Aid Certificate, Child Safe Certificate and Working With Children Check (WWCC) which are now a requirement for working in the industry.

This VET pathway has enabled me to successfully get a job before completing the course.
