The Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Early Childhood) and the Master of Teaching (Early Childhood) have been approved by The Australian Children´s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) and successful completion qualifies you to work in children’s services in Australia (with children aged 0 – 5).
If you complete the Early Years option you will be qualified to work in children’s services plus gain provisional registration with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) as a primary teacher. If you intend to teach outside Victoria, we recommend you check registration requirements with the relevant body.
