Early Childhood Education and Care Courses

The role of educators in this sector involves working with either children in early childhood in a range of education and care settings, or with school aged children in outside school hours care and vacation programs. Educators may work under supervision or autonomously, or may have the responsibility of supervising volunteers and other staff.

Job roles vary from support, supporting the implementation of an approved learning framework and the wellbeing, learning and development of children, to one of implementing and managing programs, designing and implementing curriculum and running the day-to-day functions of the education and care service.
