Diploma Information

If your career goal is to own and operate or work in a Out of School Hours Care Service (OOSHC), then a Diploma of School Age Education and Care provided by AICT Learning is the most effective way of obtaining the right qualifications.

With a Diploma of School Age Education and Care the level of learning and training will challenge every aspect of the industry, so you achieve more knowledge and confidence in your centre. In the course you will be trained on children’s health, their safety, how to nurture their development, interactions with the families and how to provide a fun, safe and friendly environment for the children for Ages 6 to 12.

This course has online components and face-to-face learning. We believe this form of education is the most effective and will ultimately have the best results for the students at completion. Our students are required to come to college once a week as well as a minimum of 6 hours per week within a OOSHC Service which you will be encouraged to to find your own service close to your area, (in some cases we are able to find a service for you) The benefits of this form of learning is that you will attain hands on experience as you are studying.
