Certificate III and Diploma courses in Early Childhood are taught at Nepean Industry Edge Training in Frankston by three very passionate and experienced trainers — Elisha, Cara and Anna. A pre-training interview is given to all potential students to answer any questions they may have and to work out which course is most suitable for their needs and careers. The trainers make sure to cater to each individual student’s needs and have a wealth of industry knowledge to offer their students.
“The trainers here are very passionate about what they do,” Elisha said. “We are always willing to assist new students and we’re excited to meet new faces. It’s a fantastic place to learn.”
Government support is available for eligible students and they have ongoing enrolments. Class sizes are kept quite small to allow the trainers to cater to the students as individuals. An induction class is held to offer an opportunity for the students to go over everything with their teachers and understand exactly what they can expect from the course. Their full-time program sees students attending two sessions a week, whether it be a weekday or night, or even a day class on a Saturday. Both courses have no prerequisites and are carried out over a 12-month period.
“We do our best to make the training fun,” Elisha said. “I also teach through experience, which I find works well. It’s not all sitting down with a book. We make learning interactive, fun and educational, whether it’s a variety of learning and assessment tools, group assignments, presentations or placement hours.”
The team is also excited to announce that their Early Childhood courses will be offered at their new Pakenham location in mid-April.
