The community services sector assists and supports individuals, families and communities in need, contributing to their well being and quality of life. Work in the community services industry entails understanding that successful service delivery requires the inter-relationship of individuals, groups and community organisations.

Our Early Childhood Education and Care courses combine classroom learning with weekly practical work experience in an early learning centre (arranged by Sterling) to equip you with a solid foundation in the essential competencies required to work as a centre-based caregiver.
