Are you considering doing a childcare course? Well, we’ve got great news for you. Being an early childhood educator in Australia comes with loads of benefits. Professionals are highly demanded in this field and also enjoy a lot of job growth. Owing to this demand, more and more people are undertaking childcare courses and there are so many education providers entering the market.
We know how difficult it can be to choose the most suitable institute, given so many options. But that’s exactly what we’re here for! Let’s make it a tad easier for you. Once you have narrowed down a list of institutes, try comparing and contrasting them on the basis of the following factors;
FACTORS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER
A very important factor to keep in mind, you have to make sure that getting to your institute is convenient. You do not want to be changing three buses and travelling for 2 hours or be stuck in Melbourne traffic to reach a 9 am class. Therefore, you have to choose an institute that’s close to you.
- ONLINE LEARNING
If you’re planning to start studying like, very soon, you would most likely have to consider studying online. Our suggestion? Try finding as much about their virtual courses as possible. Talk to experts and ask questions; this would help you decide whether an institute is suitable for you.
- DURATION OF COURSE
Course providers have their own duration for courses, but certificate and diploma courses can last for about 9-16 months. This information is provided on the course information page. If details about duration are not provided, we suggest enquiring from the institute.
Goes without saying, but you have to ensure that the fees charged for your course are affordable and within your budget.
If you are a citizen or a permanent resident, chances are, you could receive government subsidy for your course (considering you are eligible). RTO’s supply details about their subsidised courses and the general eligibility criteria. Most institutes in Melbourne offer government subsidised courses, but you should still verify.
Another thing to keep in mind, is whether your chosen institute offers flexible batches. Some course providers deliver courses on fixed days which can be difficult if you don’t get your preferred batch. Before selecting a provider, you should make sure they offer classes at your desired days and times.
RESEARCH IS KEY
When it comes to find the best fit for you, doing your research is key! A little goes a long way and given the fact that there are so many RTO’s to choose from in Melbourne, the more you know the better. With Google, your search for the right institute is so much easier. You could get in touch with people who have already studied with the institute to see if they would recommend studying there, or you can also look up the reviews and read about multiple students’ experiences
MAKE A DECISION
Gone over everything? It’s time to choose the option that fits you best. Remember- accessible, affordable, right duration and classes that fit your schedule. Good luck!
