SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Children’s Education and Care Industry Reference Committee and a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), is undertaking a detailed review of the following six qualifications and associated 65 units of competency in the Children’s Education and Care Sector: 

  • CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care
  • CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care
  • CHC40113 Certificate IV in School Aged Education and Care
  • CHC50213 Diploma of School Aged Education and Care
  • CHC30213 Certificate III in Education Support
  • CHC40213 Certificate IV in Education Support.

This review continues from previous work in response to the 2015 Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) strategic review, Training for early childhood education and care in Australia. The ASQA findings and broader issues relate to the children’s education and care qualifications and units of competency contained in the CHC Training Package.

Previous consultation in 2016 highlighted some consistent themes and messages which have been made a focus of the September 2017 consultation paper. In turn feedback from that paper, combined with guidance provided by the TAC, has informed the content of Draft 1 documents.

National consultation for Draft 1 will be open from 20th November 2017 – 14th February 2018. During this time Draft 1 material will be available for comment on the SkillsIQ Feedback Forum.

Throughout this period SkillsIQ will be undertaking a number of key activities to engage industry stakeholders and VET professionals.  These will include consultation forums, webinars, and opportunities to give feedback via the SkillsIQ Online Feedback Forum.

Additionally, national consultation workshops are now scheduled to gather stakeholder feedback and detail the process for the review of Draft 1 Children’s Education and Care training package products (which can be accessed via the SkillsIQ Feedback Forum).

"It is up to the RTO to empower students to identify credible sources. Whilst it is culturally safe for students to seek support from local communities and Elders we cannot have an expectation that they will be readily available for consultation"
