The Victorian Department of Education and Training is partnering with the Australian Catholic University and the Front Project to provide an accelerated 18-month Bachelor of Early Childhood Education for educators as they look to take the next step in their careers.

 

The Innovative ITE degree presents an exceptional opportunity for diploma qualified educators to become a qualified early childhood teacher (ECT), with the Victorian Government paying for university course fees and a degree which can be completed in just 18 months. For those who commence their studies in March 2022, graduation is expected in July 2023. 


For students who apply via the Front Project, free access to the Upskill Program will be included.
