DIPLOMA EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION AND CARE
My friend had done a course with ACE and she thought it would be a great place for me to begin my training. It’s really close to home, so I looked it up on the internet and then came to the College to find out some more information. The team here made all the difference.
I did this course for my young daughter – I wanted her to look at me and be proud of my achievements. Within the first 40 hours of work placement I was offered a job, wow! I didn’t think I was good enough, and was nervous when starting. But after that, I knew not only my daughter would be proud, I was proud of myself. I felt more confident and proved to myself that I could do it.
All students with English as a second language like me feel nervous about joining classes. I would encourage anyone thinking the same way to not be afraid, don’t let it hold you back. Just look at me – you can do it!
I first found ACE online while looking for an RTO to update my Certificate IV TAA to Cert IV TAE with the LLN module. At the completion of that course I saw ACE offered Cert III in Individual Support/Aged Care I didn’t hesitate to sign up.
The passion of the trainer shone bright, she showed us the right way to go about everything and how to do the very best for our clients. The amount of hands on experience and the fact I had a job before I finished was such a surprise.
I sat on the fence for too long and should of had a go quicker, if you want a change only you can make it happen, don’t wait.
Through-out high school I always knew that my career path would be in early childhood education, I really love working with children, every-day is so different, things are never, ever the same.
My getting started story is simple; I was browsing subjects relating to Early Childhood and clicked on the ACE website. From there I was offered a Scholarship and here I am today with my Certificate III completed. To anyone out there I would say go to ACE and get out of your comfort zone. This is a place you will want to be.
I’m looking forward to a big and bright future. The next step is a Diploma in Early Childhood and then on to University.
That ACE continues to attract and retain quality trainers (the reason I enrolled) says a lot about the organisation, its people and commitment to our community. I have no hesitation in recommending ACE to anyone.
Completing this qualification was a requirement of my employment, but it has meant so much more. For me ACE has been supportive at every step, they are part of the community, have been here for a long time and understand the local area.
I heard fantastic reviews about the quality trainers and I could access fee support – I enrolled and never looked back.
