New Diploma of Child Care Course! Enrolments Open Now
The brand new Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care (CHC50113) course has launched! This course replaces the old Diploma of Children’s Services (CHC50908) qualification. It is the ideal choice if you are seeking Diploma training in child care to advance your career or ensure compliance with regulations.
There are currently only a small number of training organisations offering this course. Many training institutions are still offering the old Diploma of Children’s Services (CHC50908). If you want the latest, most up to date course, then this is the one to do.
Should You Study the Diploma?
This is the ideal qualification if you want to advance your child care career and work as a group leader, centre director/manager, centre coordinator or family day care coordinator.
Many child care services also need multiple diploma-qualified early childhood educators on staff to be compliant with regulations, so it may open up more employment opportunities.
