The questions are vague, the resources given don't match the cluster we are working on, I ask very specific questions to get a direct clear answer from my online teacher and their response is "Yes sounds good"(there was nothing good about the question), I posted that I am a visual learner and asked for examples and was told "just do your best". I was wondering if any other visual learners are having the same problems and if so how are you combating it?
Hi I am in the same position and part way through my fourth module, don't give up. I have joined here for extra help because it can get overwhelming when trying to find motivation when your life is hectic LOL.. Starting placement tomorrow morning, wish me luck ;)
Who are you studying with? I can't go passed cluster 2 without a prac. I live in a rural area and all the principals were away so I had to wait 2 months to line up a prac. Now school is almost out.

TreeTom ,Sorry just saw your question. I am rural as well and am studying through MADEC job network. i will be lucky to make the deadline myself so totally understand. Can you talk to your lecturer about an extension? I cant do an extension, but can postpone for 3 months and submit all the unfinished modules together.

I will have to complete mine next year apparently. The school that accepted me for prac is willing to let me do my 100 hrs, but OTEN says I can't work ahead in prac hours and I really don't think I can complete my assignments in time to finish before school is out. I can't get the teachers to actually answer a question and if they do each teacher gives me a different answer.

How are all you ladies going with your study?

I'm signing up to do this course at JCU at the beginning of 2017. Is anyone else currently doing it through JCU? If so, how are you finding it?

Hi mummyto3,

What do you find your struggling with? I haven't done any form of study since I left school so this will be a whole new ball game for me and I have to admit to being very worried I won't cope!

I am 56 and not a native born Australia. I have never been to school in Australia and I don't have any experience that parents of school children would have. So I am struggling to understand what they want in the way of an answer. I am a visual overthinker so online study is extremely difficult. The general feel is why are you taking an online course then. They don't get it. It is 65km to the closest TAFE and they offer auto mechanics and sheep shearing. I don't really have an option except to study online and they don't help if you can't handle it.

I find the wording of some questions difficult to understand, i dont think they supply enough reading materials and have found support hard to get at times

Me to. Why not get rid of double negative and vague unclear thoughts and just ask a simple version to the question in plain English.

Hello, I'm new here and looking forward to my cert 3 studies in early childcare education. Does anyone have assessments to share maybe? I would like to take a look and prepare in advance, would make it helpful. :)

That's right... Placement is not paid for... It is part of your qualification requirements...

Your teacher will be able to tell you how to approach places where you want to do your placement
