Enrolment Conditions

Whilst Child Care Services Training qualifications are open access, to ensure the success of an individual, CCCT's facilitators recommend that students have completed a minimum of year 10 and that their literacy and numeracy skills be at basic adult learning level.

If a student does not meet the minimum requirements, our facilitators will recommend an introductory pre-vocational course to assist with literacy and numeracy skills.

For placement within services, students will need to provide evidence of a clear Police Check displaying their legal capacity to work with children.

Study sessions and workshops may also be available to learners for additional support. Learners will have access to a facilitator to provide support as they work through their units of competency.
