Educare Pre-Traineeship for Early Childhood Project


Hessel Group’s training arm, Enhance Training, will deliver the project, and expects at least 21 participants will continue into a formal traineeship or work placement on completion, earning a Certificate III while employed as a childcare aide.


The four-week program is for prospective childcare workers, inviting 30 participants to learn the basic skills required to excel in an early learning environment.


The project was announced at a Childcare Industry Roundtable, held in June to discuss the industry’s workforce requirements and explore innovative options to strengthen training.


The project has been established to enable the use of apprenticeships and traineeships in a field where these training models have not historically been used.
