  • CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care

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.

"Do the hours of workplace assessment or 12 months service in a regulated ECEC ( entry requirements) prior to enrolling in the Diploma contribute to or can be evidence of the 280 hours of work in children's service? If so, and these are already mandatory entry requirements, the statement seems redundant."
