Are you thinking of changing your career path? Or are you really unsure of what it is you want to do?  At OCA, we understand.  That's why we have created this Childcare Career Sampler course to give you a taste of your potential future and the study involved in turning your dream into a reality.

"I have never come across an online childcare course like this before! I really enjoyed the "taster format" of the course and it helped me to confirm that this is what I want to do in the future. I loved all the real-life videos that are included. Thank you to you and your team for all your help." - Hayley

Our Childcare Career Sampler course is the first step to a solid career in childcare, allowing you to sample the skills and knowledge you need to inspire and support children in a community setting. Our childcare industry experts have designed this course so you can experience "a day in the life of a childcare worker" whilst gaining an insight into the study involved in this career. 

If you have a passion for children and think you would enjoy working in childcare, then you must do this online childcare course before investing in more expensive courses.

There’s a real shortage of suitably qualified workers in the early childhood sector. This childcare course can open up more exciting job prospects for you, and it's a great place to start your learning journey. 

If you already work in the industry and you simply want to refresh your skills or enhance your knowledge, you've come to the right place. You will love our "real world" scenarios and industry videos. 

Just imagine having a job that you love! This educational course will allow you to experience (via online learning) what it is like to be an Assistant Educator, Child Care Educator, Family Day Care Educator or Assistant, Mobile Childcare Assistant Educator, or Nanny.

More Content. More Skills. More Value.

All lessons are presented in step-by-step learning modules perfect for studying at a pace that suits your lifestyle. Once you’ve completed this career sampler, speak with your state department about completing any relevant checks and permissions that apply to the industry (i.e. a Blue Card needed for working with children). Then, you’ll be ready to embark on the next stage of your career.

Enrol now to get instant access to this online childcare course and start studying immediately!

They’re perfect for people with busy lives and families who want to better themselves while unlocking better opportunities.
