Direct Entry Pathway 

Enrolment Conditions

Whilst Child Care Services Training qualifications are open access, there is a minimum age requirement of 17 years. To ensure the success of an individual, Child Care Service Training’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. Child Care Services Training uses a Language Literacy and Numeracy Tool, designed to identify individual students support requirements.
Child Care Services Training will undertake a conversation with the Student to establish any other additional support requirements and if relevant our facilitators will recommend an introductory pre-vocational course to assist with literacy and numeracy skills. 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.
