Work Placement Policy

Work Placement

All of the courses on our scope require students to undertake work placement as part of their course. This is a national requirement for the six courses we offer and work placement must be undertaken regardless of where or with whom a student is enrolled in order to obtain the qualification.

Work placement is often the first step to employment in this sector. ACTAC offers a free service assisting its current students find a suitable work placement by providing resume advice, on-site insurance, a work placement letter, and when placement opportunities do arise through providers we notify students in the local area, we are unable to seek out placements for individual students.

For students studying either CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care or CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care please note that ACTAC does not accept work placement being carried out in a family day care setting.

How can I find suitable work placement?

  • Treat this as a job interview, call the centres around your area and ask them for availability – choose the one that suits you best based on location and availability. It may best to arrange a face-to-face ‘interview’ with the centres to make a good impression.
  • We will provide you with an enrolment letter which states that you are a learner with ACTAC and will need to complete work placement within the timeframe of your course.
  • We have had lots of success stories from our students at their work placement, contact your trainer when you enrol to ask if there are any recommended centres in your area from previous students of ACTAC!
