      Tina,
      As per ACECQA’s qualification requirements, educators require an approved qualification. If you plan to work unsupervised you must have a diploma of childhood education and care. Please refer to the related details on the acecqa website.

    I have worked in an outside school hours care for nearly 6 years now, 4 and a half years as an educator and 1 and a half years as an assistant coordinator, during that time I have been the acting coordinator for several months whilst our coordinator was on leave. I have been trying to go through the diploma of oshc through another provider but the level of work they want me to do is atrocious, each assignment is 20+ pages long 🙁
