Monday, January 14, 2019

If you’ve decided that you want to embark on a career in child care, congratulations! The next step you’re probably looking at is choosing a course that’s right for your chosen career path. With so many online child care courses available to you, deciding on one can be tricky. Don’t worry — while not all online courses are created equal, we’ve rounded up some essentials to look for when finding the online child care course for you.

The right training is vital for you to thrive as a child care professional. An internet search can give you many online courses to explore, but it’s sorting the good from the bad that can be overwhelming. You could also find yourself comparing online child care courses to on campus options. To help you make the best decision, let’s take a look at the benefits you should be looking for from online child care courses.

  • Dedicated trainer support

With any course or new endeavour, support is vital to your success. We believe that all online courses should provide each student with their own dedicated trainer to support them throughout their training journey.

A trainer should be a person who students can call, email, text or meet up with when they have questions or concerns — or even if you just need some words of encouragement or a helping hand. All Practical Outcomes students enjoy the benefits of an experienced trainer who know the child care industry inside and out.

  • Practical approach to training

Your online child care course should be completely relevant to the currently child care industry and give you ample opportunity to get hands on experience within it. To become a confident and capable child care professional, you need real life training that theory cannot provide.

That’s why at Practical Outcomes we ensure our online students are required to undertake practical placement as part of their course. Our placement coordinator carefully matches you to a child care centre that will be as convenient as possible for you and works with your existing commitments to enable you to complete this essential element of your course. Plus, your dedicated trainer will visit you on site for extra support.

  • Train anywhere, anytime

You don’t need to put your life on hold to study child care and embark on a rewarding new career. By enrolling in an online child care course you can study when and where suits you best! Whether you’re a parent, or you don’t have access to transport, or you would simply prefer the freedom of studying anywhere, anytime, online courses are the way to go.

Practical Outcomes offers reputable online child care courses that give you all the benefits of traditional study with the convenience of online training. An online course should never be a shortcut or lesser version of a course — make sure you look in the reputation of any provider before enrolling.

  • High quality online learning

Studying online shouldn’t just be a link to a booklet. For example, at Practical Outcomes we have created a brand new online learning portal. Students visit the portal to access materials and submit assessments. You can collaborate with other students through our online forum spaces and get interactive with your training with videos and quizzes. This is next level online training.
