This course requires students completing a mandatory 120 work placement hours in an approved Early Childhood Education and Care Service.

  • Structured learning plan that indicates the purpose of the work placement and the minimum requirements for training and assessment in the specified units of competency.
  • An overview of the training, monitoring and assessment roles and responsibilities of all parties,

Work placement is designed to:

  • to strengthen the individual’s experience of the workplace to support future expectations of performance in the workforce
  • to develop practice skills and application of knowledge within the workplace, promoting stronger embedding of learning
  • to provide exposure to real workplace situations and circumstances which cannot be replicated in a learning environment or simulation.
  • work placement will also prepare individual candidates for their assessment experiences

PREVIOUS STUDIES RECOGNITION

Previous study or experience may be recognised either through a Credit Transfer (CT) or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pathway.

CREDIT TRANSFER

Do you already have a qualification, statements of attainment or academic statements for units completed at another Registered Training Organisation (RTO)? 

National recognition is all about recognising these previous studies.

Where units of competency have the same National code but were awarded by another RTO, JSW will recognise these to assist you in completing this qualification.  Simply present your original documentation during your interview.  Fees do not apply for recognition of credit transfers.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that allows a student to receive recognition and credit for the skills and knowledge they have, no matter how and where they were attained. This can include skills and knowledge acquired through training, paid employment, voluntary positions and general life experience. Fees apply for RPL assessment.
