This course is designed to provide an overview of what it is like to work as a trainee educator in an early childhood education and care service. It covers the variety of tasks an educator might be asked to complete, what is contained in a typical job description, what is typically covered during an induction.
New and trainee educators, as well as students who would like to become early childhood educators and would like a better understanding of what the role entails.
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.
