The Bachelor of Early Childhood Education and Care (Birth - 5) is a four-year professional degree that qualifies you to work as a teacher in preschools and long day care as a four-year trained teacher, as well as preparing you for employment in other parts of the children's and family services sector. If you love working with children, this accredited four year teaching degree is for you.
As well as practical core units you will undertake a work placement each semester which will allow you to apply what you've learned in a real workplace setting. You will study child development and pedagogical practices, welfare, ethics, diversity and social justice. During work placements, you will have the opportunity to test your theoretical understanding in a real workplace.
- Students seeking employment in an early childhood centre will need to complete a senior first aid course to meet WorkCover requirements.
- Students wishing to later register as a teacher for work in primary or secondary education, may also need the Higher School Certificate General Mathematics minimum Band 4 or completion of Mathematics (2 Unit).
- Where a student does not meet this requirement they can enrol with TAFE NSW to complete the requirement.
