The course was full of important theory that related directly to Early Childhood. It is great that as we were studying we were also required to partake in industry placement so we could put our studies into practice. I feel the curriculum was implemented in a way that all styles of learning were catered for (practical, theory etc.) creating an environment that was inclusive of different learning styles.

It was easy to study on campus at south west TAFE, however it was hard to become a good educator with not much pay but long hard work at childcare services.

Balancing family and study while working full time was not easy, but I managed and it was all worth it. My course went longer as the course changed while I was over half way through and I had excellent teachers.

Good course and course material. Lack of consistency with teachers. Good opportunities to gain employment.

Course was very interesting and helped me learn many new things. Vocational placement was good, except teachers weren't very helpful in final semester when there was an educator at a centre who treated me very poorly and with much disrespectfulness.

The course was really well designed in real industrial. However, if I haven't change my interesting I would get a job easily because most of my work placement educators were impressed what I am doing at vocational placement.

I found the course quite an easy course to complete. The teachers were very helpful and full of wisdom as they had all been in the industry a long time and had a lot of knowledge. The one thing I found hard was it was a lot of reading off a power point and I found it a little boring at times. But I’m sure some people would be happy to learn that way, I just learn faster by doing things and talking about them rather then reading.

The lectures are helpful and the course itself is very helpful and it is fun it's hard work but it pays off
