To help attract more students, the NSW government will cover 75 percent of TAFE course fees for Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care, which should deliver a $5000 saving.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said, "If this is something they (students) want to do and they know the government is picking up 75 percent of the cost of their studies, they’re more likely to put their hand up and that’s what we want to do".
“We are responding to increasing demand for childcare and education by investing millions to train our students so they can complete early childhood education and care studies at a significantly reduced cost,” Ms Berejiklian continues.
For more information, please contact your local NSW TAFE.
This is a great opportunity for those who are thinking about studying and working in early childhood to be able to obtain their qualification at an affordable cost and start their career in this industry.
