You will also be qualified to work in specialist early childhood contexts, including childcare and kindergartens throughout Australia. A unique feature of this course is the opportunity for you to gain a nationally recognised Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care within your first one-two years of the course.

The Education (Early Childhood) program from CQUniversity Australia includes 125 days of planned teaching practice in schools and other learning sites and an optional additional 20 days diploma practicum - 15 of which must be spent with children in the birth to 35 months group. You MUST complete a 15-day placement with children in the birth to 35 months group. This 15-day placement fulfils the requirements for Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA), which stipulates that students must complete a minimum of 15 days with children in the birth to 35 months group. Professional practice blocks are included in each year of the course structure, and many opportunities for applying theoretical knowledge in practical ways have been embedded in each of the 32 units that make up the course.
