An exciting career in Childcare is what a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care can offer you. Engaging with children aged 0-6, you will learn how to educate, prepare healthy food, work with diverse cultures and provide quality care to the next generation of Australians. Starting a career in childcare, one of Australia’s fast growing industries, is as simple as enrolling in our Childcare course with h&h Accredited Training.
Learn all aspects of education and care during your course and put into practice during your onsite work placement at one of our partnering early learning centres.
This certificate can lead to roles such as:
h&h offer these courses through classroom, distance (home-based with access to one-on-one trainer support at the college), traineeship (work-based training) and Online (digital learning). You have up to 12 months to complete this course (traineeship timeframes vary, see our staff).
Our Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care is composed of fifteen (15) core units and three (2) elective units. These units will provide you with the knowledge and skills to effectively manage and care for young children as well as provide education tailored to their needs.
Industry fact – “In 2017, formal or informal early childhood education and care was a usual form of care for 49% (or 2.0 million) of children aged 0-12.” (1) This trend has continued to increase
h&h arranges the work placements for students currently studying Childcare courses at Certificate III or Diploma level. We have long standing relationships with several childcare centres and facilities, some even being run by previous h&h students, in Sydney which makes our students job ready and in high demand for employment. These facilities are in areas close to public transport and have access to onsite parking.
Placements are generally full-time (160 hours in total) and are completed on weekdays, which not only allows students an opportunity to develop their learnt skills but an experience that could lead to gaining employment.
