National Relationships Manager
Kylie supports a team of State based Relationships Coordinators, whose role includes supporting managers, students, trainers and assessors in the programs being implemented. Her role is to ensure the quality of the Australian Early Childhood College's (AECC) program and support you and your trainees to access the most appropriate program. She is the key contact for you to interact with around the progress and quality of the programs that we offer.
We have over 20 years' experience providing work-based training. We have trained and assessed thousands of students. Many of these students have progressed through Certificate III and Diploma traineeships and then moved into managerial roles such as Centre Managers, 2ICs and Educational Leaders that you may have come across at other services. All AECC trainers and assessors have extensive Early Childhood experience as ex Centre Managers and Educational Leaders. We train and assess many Early Childhood staff each year across NSW, ACT, VIC and SA, working towards organisational goals and vision to provide the best training and performance outcomes for the sector.
We have found that the key to a successful work-based learning program is meaningful contact. While the workplace can replace a classroom setting nothing can replace the importance of the relationships between trainer, student and their mentors. We value the partnership with each Service so training is meaningful and linked to specific directions, strengths and challenges in each Service.
Kylie is here to support you. Some of the ways that she can support you is talking you through the sign-up process for new trainees, offering support around study time strategies that work for you and your team, general support and guidance of trainees and strategizing effective outcomes.
National Enrolments Manager
Scott supports a team of enrolment officers and Student Support Coordinators whose role includes supporting managers, students and trainers and assessors through the student journey. After your trainee has been signed into their traineeship by the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) Scott is notified by the AASN or the State training service. Scott then contacts you at the service to advise that notification has been received and to commence the enrolment process.
The current enrolment process has three steps that the enrolments team go through with each student:
Pre Enrolment - this involves a phone call with the trainee that takes around 3 to 5 minutes.
Enrolment Pack - prior to the COVID risk we would organise a face-to-face visit to your service to meet with the trainee and complete the enrolment that way. To ensure the safety of your staff and families we are currently posting materials to the service and organising a phone appointment to complete the enrolment.
Enrolment Appointment - once the enrolment pack has been recieved we go through the pack with the trainee. This call usually takes 10 to 15 minutes. During this call the program is discussed, the training plan is negotiated, all forms are completed and the importance of actively "working towards their qualification" is discussed.
Once all documentation is received by Head Office a trainer is allocated to support your trainee through their qualification.
