Upskilling of Workers to Diploma Qualifications Program
The project is designed to upskill existing workers, with Child Care Services Training Australia delivering higher-apprenticeships to 15 workers across eight businesses.
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.
It 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.
