Collection: Enrol Now

Thank you for your interest in becoming an early childhood educator i our beautiful campus at the Abbotsford Convent Melbourne.  Just think, you might be making the brave step into one of the most rewarding careers!  

We will be with you every step of the way.  We do not see our students as 'empty vessels' ready to be filled with information and ideas, but rather see our role as one of 'igniting the flames' and passion to become the very best you can be.  

Below is the Enrolment Process : 

1. Add the below Free product to your bag and check out.  This will create your website profile and trigger a phone call from us.

2. We will call you to see if this course is the right fit for you, by working through your career path ideas and passion for educating children.

3. We will then provide you with the enrolment documents to complete where we can confirm your eligibility for study and any government funding

5. Once approved you will be able to then purchase the relevant course at the correct price and begin your studies.

See below for a more detailed description of the Enrolment Process.

Given that you are making such a big decision our engagement process begins with a chat.  During this chat we will outline the types of jobs and careers available to you, discuss the 'nitty gritty' of early childhood education (dealing with poopy nappies and singing about it!) and if this does not turn you off we will outline the course structure and requirements to pass.

If you then decide that this course is for you, we will conduct a Language and Literacy test to see if you meet at least Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) level 3.  This is a technical way to ensure you have approximately year 8 literacy, can locate and comprehend information in detailed written material such as a job description, can interpret information from charts and tables such as flight schedules and use the 'help' facility in a software program. 

Basically, we do not want to sign you up for a course that you don't like the career prospects, have a poor understanding of the course structure, or wont have the literacy and numeracy to be able to complete.  Thats just unethical!

Are you the 'right fit' for this course?


    Ok, I'm interested but how much time do I need?

    1. You will need to put aside Monday evenings between 7:00 and 9:00 to participate in online workshop activities.
    2. You will need to put aside 1 weekday to participate in work placement activities (to a total of 120 hours cert III and 240 hours Diploma ). 
    3. You will need to attend 6 face to face workshops (Cert III) or 12 workshops ( Diploma) scheduled 1st Saturday of each month at the Abbotsford Convent.

    Students will develop an individual learning plan based on a deep and abiding personal interest – anything from the arts to animal husbandry and natural sciences – an approach called project-based learning.  Subjects for study are then "contextualised" around that area of interest.

     In our 'reverse classroom' you will practice, play and learn in real life environments and you will bring these experiences, and 'real problems' (not scenarios) to the classroom where you will workshop solutions.  We see the world as the classroom and our learning hub a place of enquiry and reflection, a place where learning is unfolding as a shared experience.
