Give your early childhood career an edge by developing your leadership skills with our Early Childhood Education and Leadership program at Victoria University

Overview

About Early Childhood Education and Leadership at Victoria University

Set yourself up for advanced career opportunities with this unique VU course, the only one of its kind that allows you to dedicate four years of study to early childhood education with a focus on leadership.

The Early Childhood Education and Leadership program at Victoria University will prepare you for a rewarding career nurturing the development and wellbeing of children from birth to five years. As a degree-qualified early childhood teacher, you’ll:

  • support young children with the important foundations to set them up for success in life
  • develop techniques for involving families as important contributors to the learning process
  • set children up for effective transitions to school.  

At VU, you will learn to support children to feel capable and confident. You’ll build a strong sense of social justice, understand child development in the early years and develop ethical professional teaching practice that includes Indigenous perspectives.

By adding a fourth year to your bachelor degree, you will open the door to a higher-paid salary, senior roles in early childhood education and management positions in childcare centres. 

Careers

Take advantage of the high demand for bachelor-qualified early childhood teachers with funded three-year-old kindergarten rolling out across Victoria and an expected 21.6% growth in childcare jobs by 2026.

Thanks to the essential experience you’ll get from working in childcare and teaching in kindergartens during your placements, you’ll be ready to register as a teacher as soon as you graduate. With this nationally accredited degree, you can work around Australia and take on leadership roles in:

  • public or private kindergartens
  • long day care centres
  • early childhood centres in Australia
  • policy development with government bodies.
