Get involved to help the Victorian Government evaluate Cert III training!

The Victorian Government is seeking a handful of early learning service providers to take part in  an Independent Assessment Trial.


The project is seeking educators who have recently completed their Certificate III (Cert III) in Early Childhood Education & Care, for the purpose of being independently assessed in their workplace. In particular, they are looking for people who have just commenced their educator role post-study, with no previous work experience.


The aim of Independent Assessment is to improve employer confidence in the quality of the apprenticeship and traineeship system, as recommended by the Victorian Skills Commissioner’s Apprenticeship and Traineeship Taskforce.


Currently, independent assessments are used in the licensed trades of plumber and electrician, but do not apply to apprenticeships and traineeships more broadly.


In this context, Victorian Government is piloting Independent Assessments in twenty Victorian apprenticeship and traineeship occupations, including the early learning sector.


ACA Vice President Paul Mondo was involved with the project group working on this pilot, and we're really pleased that the early learning sector has been included, as it allows our sector to provide meaningful feedback about the outcomes of the Cert III courses and provide constructive criticism.
