This is a VET Delivered to Secondary Students (previously VETiS) course and can only be completed as part of your VCE or VCAL program.

The Certificate III IN Early Childhood Education and Care enables you to plan and implement appropriate care and educational experiences for young children.

Through the combination of face-to-face, online and practicum based learning, you will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to work effectively as a professional team member in an early childhood service.

These skills include gaining an understanding of legal and ethical requirements, engaging with young children and their families, facilitating children's leisure and play, and fostering holistic development and wellbeing.

Graduates may work under direct supervision and may also have limited supervisory responsibilities of volunteers.

The two years' part time study through the VETDSS program will give you an opportunity to commence your studies in the Early Childhood Education field.

The course will be delivered through a mixture of online activities, classroom delivery and simulated Early Learning Centre environment.

You will learn using role plays, simulations, project work and a total of 120 hours of structured workplace learning over two years (60 hours per year), which will be undertaken in a variety of early childhood settings.

The traineeship option is available if you are currently working 15 or more hours a week in a children's service.

If you have already completed the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care, you will be able to complete this diploma in one year instead of 1.5 years.

After successfully completing this course, you will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to explore a career in a wide range of children's services.
