Pre-traineeship program for childcare workers

A pre-traineeship program will prepare 30 new childcare workers for careers in the growing sector – a new sector where traineeship and apprenticeship training models have now been introduced.

The four-week program will be delivered by Hessel Group’s training arm, Enhance Training, and will equip participants with basic skills needed to excel in an early learning environment.

At least 21 participants will continue into a formal traineeship or work placement on completion of the program, earning a Certificate III while employed as a childcare aide.

The project was announced at a Childcare Industry Roundtable, held in June 2019, that discussed industry’s workforce requirements and explored innovative options to strengthen training.
