Finding child care jobs in Australia

Finding childcare jobs in Australia can sometimes be daunting, frustrating and disappointing. It can feel even more challenging when you don’t have any qualifications or experience. It might come as a surprise to learn that finding child care jobs in Australia isn’t quite so difficult.

Last year’s Census produced data showing that child care workers are in high demand. It is, in fact, one of Australia’s fastest growing jobs!

“But I’m not qualified”

You might be thinking well that’s great but I need a job now, and I don’t have the qualifications required to work in child care. You’ll be pleased to know that at Practical Outcomes we make sure that gaining the qualifications, knowledge and skills to work in child care is simple and even enjoyable.

Within one year you could be earning a child care worker salary of $39,324 to $57,668 (according to Payscale), working in child care in Melbourne — a career that is equal parts fulfilling, flexible and fun.

In fact, as soon as you enrol in a child care course and begin studying you could even start working in a child care centre. This is thanks to the ‘actively working towards’ provisions as per ACECQA.
