Upskilling childcare workers through higher-apprenticeships

The Upskilling to Diploma Qualifications program will deliver higher-apprenticeships to 15 existing childcare workers across eight businesses.

Delivered by Child Care Services Training Australia, the project has been developed in collaboration with employers to maximise the trainees’ opportunities to continue to work in their role whilst moving forward in their career path.

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.

The project has been established to enable the use of apprenticeships and traineeships – these training models are new to the sector.
