Fees and Funding Options
Making the decision to study is a significant investment. H&H provides students with the option to pay in weekly, fortnightly or monthly installments, this means students do not have to come up with a large portion of payment upfront.
To gain admission, each student completes the enrolment paperwork and pays an administration fee. This fee is non refundable. Then the chosen payment plan commences with the reminder of fees. The course fee includes all course materials, insurances, full tuition and student support services. See below for further course inclusions:
• First Aid (if part of qualification – see individual course subjects) not included with distance enrolments
• Post support – Our college provides support after you course has finished
• Additional learner support – you can access support 7 days per week through a dedicated email address
• Our friendly staff are available 6 days per week at the college (on site or phone call) they can assist you with enrolment enquiries, work placement assistance and much more…..
Distance (Home based) and Traineeship students also include unlimited trainer/assessor support (via workplace visits, email and phone). First aid cost is an additional cost to distance students (please ask staff for dates of training to join at the college or information for organisations in your area delivering first aid training)..
Prior to commencing work placement, aged care and disability students are required to obtain a National Criminal History Check at the additional cost of $52.

Deferring Your Studies
H&H recognises that students may choose to defer their course due to personal circumstances, interrupting their studies. It is imperative that you notify H&H administrative staff as soon as possible. Should a student wish to defer their studies, this must be formally approved by the Training Manager and will only be granted for a maximum period of 3 months.
Should a student be deemed NYC, it may be recommended by the trainer/assessor and/or Training Manager to re-join further classes. The student will be required to undergo the formal enrolment process again.

Hi, my name is Arti. I have landed in this country less than a year ago. And selecting a course has been such a tough decision for me. The journey began with H&H Accredited Training College. Everyone has been so supportive during my Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care Course. I have been so nervous at the start but my teacher guided me through all the way. I have a permanent job today and am continuing with my studies, Diploma Course.
I would like to thank H&H Team for facilitating this class and for their continuous enthusiasm and energy.
Hi my name is Douha and I just finished my Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care and H&H Training. I really had a good time and am enjoying the experience during my studying of the Certificate III and Diploma in ECEC. The Staff and service were helpful and beneficial especially my teacher. She is an amazing teacher, always present when we need her. She supported us in class and during the work experience. I advice every person that wants to study Child care to come and try H&H training.
I have just finished a CHC50113 – Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. Having a great teacher made a big difference in my studies. She was professional and knowledgeable and used her experiences and professionalism to help me achieve my studying goals.
I highly recommend H&H Training to achieve your dream course. I will recommend this college to others to get the benefit of a good college and supportive teachers.
I would like to use this opportunity to say thank you to my teacher who is the loveliest person/teacher/supporter in my life. She worked very hard for all of us to go through this process and finish our diploma, as all of us are coming from different cultures and English is our second language. She used her own time to give us more support and help us learn more and be more professional in our job. I worked 15 years in the same industry but I learnt more so much in my Diploma class here.
The college staff were so supportive each step on the way and I was assisted by lovely people, who were always nice and helpful. Thank you for everything. I will recommend this college to others to get the benefit of a good college and supportive teachers.
I learned a lot on how to take care of my baby who is going to come soon.
My English skills especially in listening and understanding have improved a lot by having classes in this college.
I have learnt lots of new information in the childcare field from this college.
I’ve got a lot of new knowledge by studying in this college and made many new friends. I ALSO got a job after I have finished my work placement.
