When selecting staff the core selection criteria for AECC is their experience with and attitude to children in a care environment. We do not want trainers who are looking for a way to escape the child care floor but rather the person who wants to share what they know and expand their knowledge and work with children.

You will see our trainers working alongside their students helping, modelling, sharing their years of experience to support the individual needs of each student.
