All participants enrolling in this course will require a Unique Student Identifier (USI) - www. usi.gov.au.
Are there any additional entry requirements?
A number of courses may require prospective students to provide additional information such as documentation, an expression of interest, evidence that you are already employed as an apprentice, or preferred prior study (or equivalent).
To successfully complete this course, you will need:
- access to a computer and Internet for some research activities and completion of assessments. You will require a reliable Internet connection.
- a current NSW Working with Children Check (or equivalent for other states) prior to being approved for work placement
- be physically able to lift and assist young children during physical care routines and manually handle furniture and equipment
WORK PLACEMENT is a requirement of this course. You will need to complete:
- a minimum of 10 hours work placement in an appropriate child, community or health service, working with children to the age of 13 years.
Work placement is experience in the workplace that formally contributes to the assessment process. During the 10 hours work placement, there are specified elements which must be assessed during the work placement period. Student assessment during work placement consists of written tasks which need to be submitted for marking at the completion of the work placement. Feedback and guidance is given to the student on these tasks by accessing staff at TAFE digital via phone or email. The workplace supervisor will provide feedback to TAFE Digital on the student's performance which will contribute to the overall assessment.
Work placement and the demonstration of practical skills are requirements of this course. Due to the impacts of COVID 19 and the disruption to service provision in the Early Childhood, Aged Care, Health and Community Services Sectors, there may be a delay or modification in being able to undertake these aspects of your course in the planned timeframe.
Credit (or recognition) for modules/units may be granted based on previous learning, studies, work and/or life experiences. Please discuss this with the teaching section when you enrol.
