Learn more about studying childcare at Linx Institute

With Australia in the midst of a baby boom a career in childcare is now more relevant than ever. The Australian Bureau of Statistics predicts that the number of children under the age of 12 is expected to grow by 500,000 by the year 2020! With this growing population and continuous release of scientific evidence confirming the significance of early childhood education and social interaction, a career in childcare becomes more than just a job.Working within the childcare industry is not only an educational and valuable experience for the children, employees also often find that their own social and personal skills improve as they interact and educate, providing a genuinely rewarding environment for children and childcare workers alike. Although routine and schedules are important to a child’s development, a career in childcare presents a fun, often unpredictable working day, calling for use of intuition and instinct combined with the knowledge and skills gained from obtaining a childcare qualification.

To work within the childcare industry the Australian Government requires you to hold at least a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care with levels of responsibility increasing as you attain further qualifications.

 Important information for all childcare educators
Since January 2016, the National Quality Framework (NQF) requires that 50% of all childcare educators have a Diploma level qualification or higher. To ensure you don’t miss out on the career path you desire, now is the time to enroll and become one of the qualified 50%.

 

Your journey to a career in childcare

Upon completion of your childcare certificate or diploma you will be equipped with a nationally recognised childcare qualification enabling you to enter any childcare centre as a highly skilled and knowledgeable Early Childhood Educator.

Those holding a Certificate III will generally assist in providing education and care to young children, with opportunities to help develop and teach the early childhood education program. Whilst those obtaining a Diploma or Double Diploma in Early Childhood can expect to begin their career developing, planning and delivering an early childhood educational program to a group of young children under the guidance of the educational leader.

As childcare is a growing industry, the possibility for career progression is imminent, with opportunities including working as a Room Leader, Supervisor or to continue your studies at the degree level.
