About the Child Care Courses Online from Australian College

The child care industry has come a long way over the past few decades. With increasing demands and higher standards for child care facilities, there is a growing demand for dedicated professionals with the right education, skills and qualifications to not only look after children, but help guide their development during those crucial formative years. If you like babies and children and have been considering a career in this competitive yet rewarding industry, our childcare courses online can help get you there.

These child care courses online lead to nationally recognised certificate and diploma qualifications. The legal minimum qualification requirement varies from state to state and role to role; for example, most states require a room supervisor or a senior manager to have a minimum of a Diploma. Most courses include practical experience opportunities, so you’ll be able to practice what you’ve learned.

Interested in working with older children? We also offer a select few online education courses, including the Certificate III in Education Support. This course is designed to prepare you for work in a classroom setting, as a teacher’s aide, educational assistant, or other similar role. Find out more by clicking on the course name above.

Australian College is a leader in distance and online education in Australia because we look after our students from the moment they select their course to the moment they graduate. Should you require any further information or assistance with enrolment, please call us on 1300 783 283.

The Certificate III in Education Support online and workplace course provides you with the necessary skills to work in a range of educational settings in support of a teacher or supervisor. It is an extensive program that readily equips graduates with theoretical and as well as practical skills to support a quality learning environment.

Many parents are now taking an active role in their children’s education. Many donate their time to assisting the teacher in an assistant teacher’s or teacher's aide role. They come to the school when they have the time and make a valuable contribution to their child’s education. Now a more formal way of providing this service has resulted in the creation of a new qualification that provides the skills to be a teacher’s aide or a teaching assistant in a community setting.
