The Bachelor of Early Learning offers professionals working in the early childhood sector the opportunity to upgrade from a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care to a four-year Bachelor qualification. The course is designed for people who are currently employed in the early childhood profession and offers a flexible online mode of study suitable for full and part-time employees in early childhood. Graduates will be qualified to teach children from birth to five as a kindergarten teacher. The Victorian Department of Education and Training requires a satisfactory criminal record check for all students undertaking placements in early learning centres. You must provide a certified copy of your valid Working with Children card at course commencement. If you do not have a valid Working with Children card, you will be required to complete a Working with Children Check application. Confirmation of a criminal record may jeopardise your ability to gain access to a suitable, or any, placement(s) and may therefore delay or prevent completion of the course. The three Essentials - Global Citizenship, Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Sustainability Thinking - are specialist areas designed to give you an edge with employers. They will enable you to adapt your knowledge and skills to new contexts in a rapidly changing world. Subjects addressing the Essentials are part of all undergraduate La Trobe degrees and can be identified in the subject database by distinct icons. The list of approved subjects is also on the Essentials webpage.
