About the course

Become a qualified assistant in the early childhood field. It is now mandatory for all workers in the field of Early Childhood Education and Care to have the Certificate III as a minimum qualification.

This certificate has direct pathways into the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care, also offered by Living & Learning Nillumbik.  

No previous experience or qualifications are required. 

We work with over 20 early childhood services across the region for student placements and professional networks.  Our relationship with these early childhood services helps to us to provide training that is relevant and up-to-date, promotes best practice, and also creates employment opportunities for graduates.

Learning is self-paced with monthly workshops, and fortnightly study support sessions delivered by our experienced trainers and assessors. Students have access to a variety of resources and Learner Guides which are available via our online Learner Portal.

You will also need to have at least two days per week available for practical placement. 

This will be discussed in more detail at your pre-enrolment interview.

Details on regular workshops/study support session are described in the Fee Schedule which is published on our website.
