When you start training in child care and early childhood courses or aged and disability care courses, you don’t just get a qualification that is represented by a piece of paper; you get hands-on experience in the industry of your choice. This means that by the time you’ve graduated, you have been in a child care centre or aged care facility and have a greater understanding of your role.
On a personal level, the experience you gain from training in a course with practical placement gives you the sense of confidence you need to flourish. That hands-on capability you will learn makes every process of getting employed a little easier. From getting the job interview to doing well in the interview, then getting started in your new career, those practical skills go a long way.
Are you thinking, ‘okay, but how do I even begin arranging practical placement in the first place when I know nothing about the industry?’
