Change in Early Childhood Training Package
As you may be aware, Skills IQ is undertaking an update of the Training Package Products in the Children’s Education and Care sector to reflect current industry skills needs. These include changes to the CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care (Certificate III) and CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care (Diploma).

One of the key changes relates to the new entry requirements for the Diploma; going forward, students will need to hold the Certificate III in order to enter the Diploma.

The final approval of the new Training Package Products is scheduled to take place in October 2020. With these changes just around the corner, ALG will start issuing separate Confirmation of Enrolments (CoEs) for the Certificate III and the Diploma for any applications submitted for the October intake and beyond, as follows:
  • COE for CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care - 39 weeks
  • COE for CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care - 65 weeks
Students can apply to undertake both courses as a “package” and 2 x CoEs will be issued (with the Diploma CoE conditional of successful completion of the Certificate III). The total duration of the package remains unchanged at 104 weeks.

Please note that further communication in relation to the transition period for current students will be provided when the new training package has been released.
As of October 2020 intake, ALG have introduced a new application cut off date for all new and extending student enrolments. Applications must be submitted by Thursday the week before the commencement of the term, unfortunately we cannot accept applications submitted after this date. Check out our timetable for latest updates.
For offshore students due to commence in Term 4, 2020 (October intake) who are not able to travel to Australia, ALG is offering the following:
To defer to Term 1, 2021 or beyond - students must complete a Course Deferral Request Form no later than Monday 10/08/2020 (AEST). All fees will be credited towards future terms. 

To cancel their studies - students can reply to ALG's notification email and quote 'I have read and understood my available options and elect to cancel my enrolment with ALG'. Students will receive full refund minus the $595 joining fee. The $250 cancellation fee will be waived.

Students who do not respond will be cancelled by ALG but are welcome to re-apply in the future.
