About the course

Our Enhance Training Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care CHC30121 (formerly CHC30113) course is designed to help you make a positive impact on children's lives in a learn-through-play environment.

Little people are unique. Our course focuses on supporting children in achieving their developmental outcomes individually and in a group situation.

This qualification will allow you to work in a range of early childhood education settings within the requirements of the Education and Care Services National Regulations and National Quality Standard.



Who is this course for?

If you’re energised and excited to spend time assisting children in growing and learning, this course is for you. The childcare industry is seeking passionate, enthusiastic people to fill roles. Having children of your own is by no means a prerequisite; just a drive to see kids thrive is.

No matter your age, background or experience level, the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care course will help you further your career and passions. Read more here!

In house student support

You will receive great student support throughout your studies with Enhance Training, where you will have your own trainer providing support, or for more individualised strategies, a learner support service (LSS) case manager will be assigned to you. LSS is an initiative of SkillsSA and the Government of South Australia and supports you with study plans, flexible study delivery, after-hours support and guidance, which also extends after your training is complete.

Find out more about how we support you during your studies here.


This course requires you to complete 160 hours of Vocational Placement under supervision in a regulated Education and Care Service. You can complete this while you study.

Our Traineeship and Placement Officer can help you determine the best business to complete and secure your placement. In the majority of cases, placements with Enhance Training lead to employment outcomes while increasing your network of professional and industry connections.

What you will need

As a student of Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care, you will need access to the Internet, email, and a computer.

Why choose to study with Enhance Training?

We’re happy to acknowledge that many nationwide training organisations offer support worker courses like ours. So why is Enhance Training the right choice for your career? What’s the Enhance Training difference?

We are the industry

Enhance Training is for those who want the best education for themselves and the best results for the people they work with. We don’t just understand the early learning and childcare industries; we are in the early learning and childcare industry. Enhance Training is part of the Hessel Group, which both employs people and assists those seeking disability support, aged care, childcare services, and allied health services.

Unlike many training providers, we are an end-to-end service. This means that through Enhance Training and the wider Hessel Group, you learn, complete placement, become qualified, complete training, and can even progress to positions within our wide network of Hessel Group care services and clients.

Direct from the experts

Our teachers and trainers are in the industry too. They have direct, recent, first-hand experience in the industry so can relate to your questions and queries about the topic and demonstrate how these scenarios may play out on the job.

Real-life practice, without the pressure

We have a dedicated Skills Lab set up with real equipment to mimic environments you may encounter on the job. This means you can practice the skills you’ve gained in full, minimising the stress of being faced with scenarios for the first time out in the real world. We find this helps our students gain a positive understanding of their skills without pressure.
