Absolutely! Certainly! Our short courses are designed to provide you with flexibility. You have the freedom to learn at your own speed, allowing you to invest more time if you want to finish your courses ahead of schedule. While we suggest around 10 hours per week for a balanced approach, we understand that you know your schedule best.

It’s important to note that the practical confirmation of skills completion still needs to complete within a 3-day timeframe. This ensures that you gain hands-on experience and embed your abilities effectively whilst showing potential employers your full capabilities.

Qualifications:
The duration it takes for a student to finish a qualification in Early Childhood Education and Care can differ based on personal situations. Our courses usually last for 12 months, but it’s possible to complete them earlier with prior industry experience or units previously completed. This means that if you excel and meet the necessary standards, you could potentially graduate sooner than the standard 12-month timeframe.
