New Career in Early Childhood Education? Start Now!


A Diploma in Early Childhood Education could be the Gateway to Your New Career

Make a Difference to Your Life and the Lives of Others

Do you want a career that will make a difference; not only to your life, but to the lives of others? Then perhaps a career in early childhood education might just be the perfect opportunity for you.

This career path is not only chock-full of opportunity for personal and professional advancement, but you will also have the great fortune of shaping young lives and giving them a better chance at a quality education.

Your Career in Early Childhood Education

If you’re leaving school and you are not quite sure what you’d like to do with your life, then a career as an early childhood teacher is certainly worth exploring. You can earn a decent living with lots of scope for promotion to managerial positions, or you could even run your own childcare centre. There’s plenty of flexibility too – you could work a stable 9-5 or choose your own hours. And if travelling is something that is important to you, it can take you all over the world!

A career in early childhood education is not just for school leavers though. Many early childhood educators are actually career changers – people who may have been unsatisfied with their jobs and wanted a change. Pursuing a career in early childhood education gives you an amazing opportunity to switch to a path that will provide you with plenty of job satisfaction and a tremendous boost in self-worth. After all, it’s difficult to feel bad about yourself when your students genuinely believe that you’re a superhero!

At Yorke, we understand how important it is to work in a career that not only challenges you and puts food on the table, but equally makes you feel as though you are making a difference. Nobody wants to feel like their precious time is going to waste, so what better a way to spend it than by educating young children and shaping them into decent, intelligent, and compassionate human-beings?

Shortage of Early Education Professionals in Australia

Importantly, there is a huge shortage of early childhood teachers in Australia at the moment, which puts you in an incredibly unique position; not only will we give you the skills and confidence you need to succeed in your new career, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to find a secure position when you graduate.

Government Funding for our Diploma in Early Childhood Education

Our diploma in early childhood education is government funded for eligible students. You can read more here about our government funded childcare courses but essentially, it means that you can hit the ground running on graduation without having to worry about course fees. In addition, Yorke will assist you with finding a work placement to put your newly acquired skills into practice as an early childhood education professional so you gain ‘real world’ practical knowledge to give you the confidence and skills to succeed.

Professional Development with Early Childhood Education Programs

Our diploma in early childhood education also offers training for managerial positions. This is ideal for early childhood educators who are already working in the childcare industry but who would like to upskill by advancing their education.

Upskilling from a CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care to a CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care is a clever strategy for those who are starting out and would like to progress quickly into a management position. It’s also ideal for ambitious students who would like to run their own early education institutions one day.

Whatever your circumstance, whether you’d like to study for a managerial position now or later down the line once you’ve gained some experience in the field, you will have plenty of opportunity to advance your position and enrich your career as an early childhood teacher.
