      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 🙁

      Hi Paula,
      Totally understand your situation. It can get very frustrating when you have to study subjects that you have already have a solid understanding and knowledge of. The cost of RPL is often substantially lower than completing a course.

      Hi Jasmine,

      Unfortunately, our RPL program requires 3 years experience for the Cert III in Early Childhood Education and Care.

      You may be more suited for a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care Traineeship Program with our partner college.
