Skills First contract

Our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality childcare training for the early childhood industry has been recognised by the Victorian Government, with Practical Outcomes awarded a Skills First contract.

The Skills First system has been designed to improve the quality of training delivered to students through Registered Training Organisations across the state. We are proud to have been offered a contract following a rigorous selection process based on assessing our training quality.

“Students and industry need to have faith in our training system. That’s why we’re only offering contracts to providers who meet the toughest compliance criteria in the country.” – Gayle Tierney, Minister for Training and Skills.


A practical, competency based approach

Our approach to training students for careers in early childhood education is competency based – this means our students are assessed based on their ability to meet the standards of the training program and related work.

We know that knowledge and skills are more important than a generic amount of time allocated for undertaking a course, so our training is hands-on.


Child care courses for child care careers

Practical Outcomes students are trained with their future careers in child care as the focus. When our students graduate they don’t just have qualifications – they are job ready.

We work hard to produce graduates who are confident and capable, and have what it takes to provide Australian children with the very best care and early childhood education.

Child care courses at Practical Outcomes are delivered by trainers with the experience and practical know-how to equip students to excel in the industry. Find out more about our range of child care courses here.

Our Skills First contract ensures child care providers know that Practical Outcomes qualifications are of the very highest standard available.

For child care workers who are trained to be the best, look no further than Practical Outcomes graduates.
