We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in becoming a relief educator with Shine Bright EYM. As we endeavour to provide the highest quality service within our kindergartens, it is imperative that our educators are qualified and experienced in working in early childhood. Should you not have any experience in early childhood, we strongly recommend that you volunteer at kindergartens of interest in your area to gain valuable experience in the field. Volunteer work can be arranged with your preschool of choice directly and current employee working with children checks are required. Applicants who do not endeavour to undertake volunteer work may result in being unsuccessful in gaining relief employment.
We are happy to accept applications even though you are still studying your certificate III however, they will not be processed and you will not be able to commence employment until you have completed all the course studies. Bachelor students are also welcome to apply, however you need to have completed the first two years of your course (full time study) and supply proof of enrolment. If you have any concerns regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
A range of tasks must be undertaken by any permanent or casual educator prior to being engaged to work with children.
Shine Bright has broken these tasks into stages:
|Stage One||Online Induction|
