    Hi there

    hoping someone may be able to tell me if the tafe college is open at the moment, only i sent them an email asking for information on childcare qualifications and as yet they have not responded. was hoping to find out what extra work i need to do so that i am qualified cert 3 when i arrive feb next year. i do hold an nvq level 3 in early years care and education, but i believe i would not be qualified in south australia. if anyone has any info on this subject i would be very interested to know more.

     

     

     

    Thank you

    HI

    TAFE is open but it's week 2 of the new semester and busy is an understatement ........ !

    I work at TAFE and stagger home most evenings to maximise the income of local winemakers (ie:I head straight for the fridge and open a bottle!)

    As Tina & Steve have said there is a central dept in Adelaide that will map your existing qualification to the relevant Australian equivalent which is useful when applying for jobs or further study.

    Ringing the TAFE info number can be a lottery --- you might not get much info, so I suggest you email directly someone in childcare at CROYDON campus ........ but to do that you need to know who to contact! If you PM me your email address I'll remind myself who is currently in the hot seat when I'm at work on Monday and let you know who to hassle.

    Hi - NVQ Level 3 is Unqualified here - Level 4. (You'd be paid as an unqualified in childcare.) :(

    I went to Currie St and they put this on a certificate for me! I also have the NNEB, and went to TAFE at O'Halloran Hill Campus who gave me the 6 remaining units that I need to do to get the Diploma in Children's Services to get Qualified here.

     

    They would be able to advise you on what you'd need to do to get qualified if you want to. I didn't have any probs with TAFE last term, although the lady I need to contact NEVER replies to email so now I just try her mobile and eventually get here.

     

    HTH,
