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:
This review continues on 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 Community Services Training Package.
The ECE Draft 2 material is now available for public consultation. Significant changes have been made to the structure of existing Qualifications, with the CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care proposed as being an Entry Requirement to the CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care.
To access the Draft 2 Validation Guide, which includes a detailed mapping table, please scroll to the bottom of this page where the Validation Guide can be downloaded.
Draft 2 material for the School Age Care (SAC) and Education Support (EDS) Qualifications and Units will be available from mid-December 2018.
