Hi, I'm also a Primary school Teacher in my 8th year of teaching. To qualify as an Early childhood teacher you need to fulfill this criteria: (i) an initial teacher education qualification relevant to the nominated occupation of at least one year full-time study (or part-time equivalent) at the higher education (university) level that includes a minimum of 45 days of supervised teaching practice with students in a school setting, relevant to the nominated occupation Check you PGCE to see what it covered. My PGCE was 5-11 so I can't qualify for Early childhood. I'm hoping to do a course but really don't fancy doing anothor PGCE or Masters. If anyone can offer any advice on suitable courses that will be accepted by the Australia skills authority please do let me know.
