Additional Information

Induction before you start the course

You will be given a formal induction at the beginning of your course. Important details are further communicated in the Learner Handbook.

There is a formal induction checklist that you will be taken through and at the end of induction you will be asked to sign the checklist to verify that you understand the details, including competency based assessment and reasonable adjustment, assessment methods, due dates and delivery requirements, surveys and the complaints/appeals process.

Alongside this there are also worksite inductions conducted if you are participating in placement as part of your training.

Work Placement

It is noted that the formal practical placement is deemed to be mandatory for the adequate completion of this course, as parts of the assessment can only be carried out in a workplace. Practical Placement is also considered essential for further job prospects. Diversitat will assist learners to gain a placement (Classroom based and FOCS).

Hours for practical placement can be assessed on an individual basis as it is recognised that some learners may already be working in the industry in some capacity and may not require the full hours of placement to show the agreed levels of proficiency and competence. This will be determined by Diversitat staff and the learner on a case-by-case basis, ensuring that all aspects of the qualification are properly assessed for competency.

Placement is generally undertaken in two, 4 week blocks in the middle and nearing the end of the course, Monday to Friday during business hours (in some instances this may be negotiable on an individual basis).

Issuing Certificates

On successful completion, participants will be awarded CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care. For unit completion only, a Statement of Attainment will be awarded.

Diversitat Training will provide all course information and resources; however, participants are required to provide their own work folders, pens etc. A materials/resources fee may be charged for course materials such as resources, handouts and text materials. Additional expenses/levies may be required for some courses to cover extra course expenses such as tools of trade, equipment, excursions etc. You will be advised if these expenses apply to your studies prior to enrolment.
