Australia: Child care apprenticeships proposed as way around skills shortage
from Sydney Morning Herald
Child care workers upgrading their qualifications would have tuition fees covered under an apprenticeship scheme to ease the chronic skills shortage in the sector, in a recommendation by a leading industry group, Care For Kids. Providers are still struggling to meet standards introduced in January which require half of all staff to have, or be working towards, a diploma in early childhood education and remaining staff to hold a certificate III qualification.
