Early Childhood Education

Early Childhood Education (ECE) has received a lot of thought and attention in the recent years. Many countries have pushed for higher standards in quality ECE and identify this among the most important things for young children. Access to high end quality childhood education services are the building blocks for the future of children. Australia is not exception to that and it has made huge improvements in its ECE sector. An average proportion of children under three are enrolled for this. The proportion of four year olds attending some form of care is also continuing to grow.
Australia is looking for childhood educators who have the necessary qualifications. International students fit into these jobs and perform well as they bring along with them their own cultural experiences from their home countries. While doing a course in ECE the student visa would allow you to work during your term for about 40 hours (more during the term breaks) thereby giving you hands-on experience while you study the course. This combination is great to enhance your skills and techniques especially when you are ready to take up your permanent job in this given sphere.

This course is delivered in a classroom set up with a combination of tutorials and workshops. At the end of it students are assessed through written tests, assignments and some hands on work placements. Industry connections with the university you enroll with can help you gain internships and practical knowledge post completion of your diploma.
