Course assessment consists of two components:
Practical Placement – so many of our students gain employment as a result of their placement. It is a great learning experience and a chance to impress!
Certificate III in Education Support
Most students will start with this course. The significant majority of schools will require a teacher aide to posses a Certificate III. The Certificate III will equip you with the skills and knowledge required to complete the broad range of tasks expected of a teacher aide.
Certificate IV in Education Support
If you have relevant work experience or previous qualifications you may request to skip the Certificate III and commence at the Certificate IV level. The Certificate IV has more of an in-depth focus on working with children with learning difficulties, additional needs and disabilities. It also qualifies you to work unsupervised.
The Certificate III to Certificate IV Bridging program
The Certificate III & Certificate IV in Education Support qualifications do have a lot of overlap. If you have completed CHC30213 Certificate III in Education Support, we do offer a bridging program across to the Certificate IV. This means that instead of completing an additional 17 units, you just complete the gaps between the Certificate III and the Certificate IV. Our bridging program will save you months of time spent on assessment and at only $980* is an affordable way to upgrade your qualifications. Download the Bridging Program Course Outline
*Prices will vary depending on the electives you have completed in your Cert III. Contact Adapt for a quote.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
If you have completed qualifications in Childcare (Childrens Services) or you have experience or other relevant qualifications you may be eligible for RPL. We specialise in RPL and guarantee that we will maximise the credit you are eligible to receive.
Working with Children Check
As working with children is a part of this course, it is required that students obtain clearance from the relevant authority prior to commencing their practical placement. In some jurisdictions students can apply for student/volunteer cards that are free but please remember that if you gain employment as a teacher aide you must hold the correct paid employee card.
There are no set in-take dates so you can enrol whenever you’re ready!
