Education Institute is the primary leader for setting a foundation for student placements through their venture of the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and care (CHC50113)
Being an Early Childhood trainer and assessor has provided me with an amazing opportunity and privilege to influence and make a real change in the lives of the students I train, which ultimately supports the education and care of children in the sector. To be able to make a difference in the lives of children through providing quality, compassionate, knowledgeable and reflective graduating educators into the Early Childhood work force is something that I am really passionate about and work on achieving with all my students.All our Early Childhood trainers at Education Institute are dedicated, engaged, knowledgeable, industry professionals who share my belief in creating positive change to the Early Childhood sector through teaching and training students to be the best they can.
Skills and KnowledgeOur Early Childhood course will set students up to become valued educators. Working with the approved training package, our class content and assessments meet the industry requirements needed to succeed in the Early Childhood sector. Our students leave our Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care course with a real sense of achievement; they are work-ready and have the skills and knowledge to perform their work role. They are inspired, confident to meet the demands and have a strong belief that they can make a difference.
Attitude, Beliefs and ReflectionOur graduating students who complete our Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care courses leave with the skills and knowledge to undertake the role as an Early Childhood educator. Our classes and assessments have been designed to challenge, inform and encourage reflection on existing attitudes and beliefs in a way that no textbook or assessment task can achieve. One of my students said to me the other day, “I now look at situations when I am working with children and families in a completely different way.” She went on to say, “I have the ability and skills to stop, think and reflect before making judgement or decision, which will always be about considering the best interest of the child.”
Many training organisations’ course content focus their class material and assessments primarily on centre-based education and care (working in a Long Day Care service). We have re-developed our Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care course content, both in class sessions and assessment material, to ensure that it is inclusive of all Education and Care services, giving our students a much more holistic and balanced training journey. Our assessment tasks and resources are sourced and linked to Early Childhood regulatory and governing bodies and provide students with opportunities to self-direct their learning through their requirement to research and locate information. This, in turn, supports embedded knowledge and skills which enhances the learning journey.
With practical examples and tasks to support educators to achieve the skills and knowledge to graduate and enter into Education and Care within Family Day Care and Out of School Care as well as Pre-school and Long Day Care, we believe this really sets our students to consider employment and career opportunities in any Education and Care service.
