The Front Project is excited to announce we are working with the Victorian Department of Education and the Australian Catholic University on an exceptional opportunity for diploma qualified educators to become Early Childhood Teachers.
The Innovative Initial Teacher Education (ITE) degree at ACU is an exceptional opportunity
for educators to become qualified ECT’s with the Victorian Government paying university course fees, in an accelerated 18-month course. Students can start as early as March this year and graduate in July next year – as a bachelor trained teacher. This opportunity provides educators with the financial, in- service, and mentoring supports needed to graduate and step into an ECT role with confidence.
Key Features of the Innovative ITE degree:
*Students on professional practice cannot be counted in ratio
Students approved for the Innovative ITE degree will receive free access to the Upskill Program, an initiative of the Front Project aimed at building up the ECEC workforce, underpinned by the vision of improving outcomes for children and families in Australia. The Upskill Program is a mixed mentoring, resources, and peer-to-peer support program that helps university students confidently navigate the key milestones of undertaking early childhood teaching qualifications through to completing their degree.
