"The terminology is problematic. Certainly, students can learn how to access and clarify policies and legislation around ATSI education but, there are definitely limitations to their accessing relevant personnel, particularly if their supervising teacher/school is not engaged with local Koori community and or networks. Having to ‘consult with’ ‘invite’ and ‘negotiate’ are unrealistic expectations for a training ESW. Feedback from students already indicates limited teacher confidence in and knowledge of ATSI education. The suggested volume of evidence is also unrealistic, especially if they need to be directly observed by their assessor."

"It is difficult to fully evaluate this unit without access to possible changes in CHCDIV002. However, I believe either one will suffer without the prior learning gained from the unit “Work with Diverse People” which is no longer a proposed core unit. This provided the opportunity for students to build a solid base of understanding in cultural competency that meets needs of all learners that can also be applied to ATSI learners. In the new course proposal there is no capacity to do this and ignores the focus on inclusivity in schools. "

"I understand that the new qualification CHC30219 itself will not be deemed equivalent to the existing qualification CHC30213. On a qualification level this makes sense. However for the individual units where the changes are only minor, relating to the clarity of wording, I would expect and hope that these new units are deemed equivalent to the existing ones. The concept of equivalence is significant factor which I believe must be taken into account. If similar units are not deemed equivalent then this creates extreme challenges for students moving from the current course to the new one. This is especially challenging for online students who do not attend face to face classes and study at their own pace. This also proposes challenges for lecturers who face severe scrutiny if they do not continuously upgrade to the new qualification. "

Education Support Draft 2 Validation

Open for feedback 08.08.2019 to 09.09.2019

The Education Support Draft 2 Qualifications and Units of Competency are now available for public consultation. These Training Package Products have been updated based on feedback received during the Draft 1 consultation period from November 2017-March 2018, as well as throughout the current consultation period for the Draft 2 Early Childhood Education and Care and School Age Care material.

The Draft 2 Education Support qualifications and units of competency have been complex due to a number of  factors including 

  • Clarification of the job roles
  • The separation of the early childhood (ECE) units from the existing qualifications
  • Concerns expressed in relation to the structure and content of the Draft 1 Education Support (EDS) qualifications, and validated with data provided by a key stakeholder 

We encourage those people who are active in the Education Support sector to review the Draft 2 Material and provide comment and feedback to guide the final draft.
