Course Description

Course Overview

In this course students will look at the legislation requirements in place relating to reporting and documenting incidents, injuries, trauma and illness in the service. The course also looks at the educator's role in administering medication to children.

Target Audience

This course is suitable for new and trainee educators, as well as students who would like to become early childhood educators and want a better understanding of what the role entails.

The course is also suitable for educators seeking professional development, or for early childhood services wanting to provide holistic professional development for staff members.

Learning Objectives

  • Legislative requirements relating to reporting and documentation
  • The information that needs to be included in the Incident, injury, trauma and illness record
  • The procedures and documentation required when administering medication to children

Business Outcomes

Many students want to work as Educators because they love interacting with young children. Many of them don't have an understanding of the broad tasks they will be expected to perform as an Educator, including setting up and cleaning the environment each day. By gaining a more holistic view of an Educator's role, students will be better prepared for the realities of the workplace. The course will also allow services to provide consistent professional development that all staff members can complete individually and at their own pace.
