Exciting News: Welcome Primary Teachers to Early Childhood
Recent change by ACECQA (The Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority) are making it easier to be equivalent ECT Recognition as an ‘equivalent early childhood teacher’. From 1 January 2022, a person who holds ALL of the following will be recognised as equivalent to an early childhood teacher:
- a primary or secondary teaching qualification AND
- teacher registration in Australia AND
- an ACECQA approved certificate III level (or higher) early childhood education and care qualification.
After the end of 2023, this transitional measure is scheduled to cease, however individuals who have obtained this combination of qualifications before the end of 2023 will continue to be recognised under this provision.
Each kindergarten has an Educational Leader supported by a team comprised of Bachelor, Diploma and/or Certificate 3 Qualified Staff. We also have a designated Early Years Advisor for each kindergarten who actively supports the staff through regular visits.
Shine Bright EYM has set processes in place that support each kindergarten so that communication is clear about the roles of all involved. Staff, Parent Advisory Groups and the general public are invited to comment on the development and review of policy and procedure that is then agreed and consistent across all services.
A significant process has been established to support all services to work toward high quality aims, with a system in place to prepare each service and staff member for its Quality Assessment and Rating visit.
