Gold Star Child Care Training is focused on providing quality training to the child care industry. Our head office is located north of the river, and our staff are mobile, delivering training and assessments to students and centres at a time and place that is appropriate, while allowing sufficient opportunity for students to perform tasks and activities required to meet competency outcomes.

We deliver training across many regions in Western Australia (from Broome to Albany), with our current clients consisting of educators, supervisors, and directors in both large and small centres, including family day care.

We believe in being able to offer the best possible service, advice, and assistance in guiding students to complete their course. Our encouragement will assist them to achieve to the best of their ability regardless of race, religion, gender, socio-economic status, disability, language, literacy, or numeracy. We uphold the principles of equal opportunity. We accept and support the many and varied learning styles that exist and encourage these as a part of our work with our students.

Our support to students and employers is 24/7, with the CEO available via phone or email at all times. Our service delivery promises fast response with a same day turn around on almost all enquiries.

We encourage contact, to any of our trainers or admin staff members, for assistance in understanding the course and its topics. Sharing our knowledge, passion and love for children and the child care industry is key to assisting our students complete their training effectively and efficiently.

It’s important to us that we provide top quality training to all our students. We employ staff who are experts in their field. All our training and assessing is conducted by Gold Star staff members who collectively have over 15 years’ experience at all levels in the child care community from Educator to Director, with each member having a minimum of 10 years’ experience. Our staff have worked in both large and family owned centres so are well equipped to deal with all ranges of issues and opportunities that may arise.

Gold Star Child Care Training has developed a well renowned identity within the industry. This has allowed us to maintain a strong presence working with many centres for a lengthy period, developing their teams from Certificate III through to School Age Diplomas.

Being client and centre focussed allows us to cater training needs for each individual circumstance.

We offer the following qualifications:

  • CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care
  • CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care
  • CHC50213 Diploma of School Age Education and Care

All our training is delivered on the job and can be completed via Traineeship, Priority Industry Training (PIT) or in a Fee for Service Arrangement.

RPL and Fee Instalment plans are available (via application) to all students.

To gain entry to the course candidates are required to have the following:

  • Verifiable USI (Unique Student Identifier)
  • Completed LLN (Language, Literacy & Numeracy) assessment; and
  • Opportunity to complete 120 Hours (Cert III) or 240 Hours (Diploma) of practical experience in a licensed Child Care Centre

Monthly site visits to each student are completed by our qualified team members to ensure progress through training. At least 70 per cent of the nominal hours for each unit are completed in a face to face learning environment. Where required, to ensure support of the student and successful completion of the course, visits can be requested more frequently.

Training duration is flexible and self-paced, meaning that students are in control of their learning. The expected duration of courses range from six months (Certificate III) to three years (diploma). While there are many factors that can impact the duration of a course, e.g. previous training completed, life skills, or workplace experience, the final amount of time taken is managed by the student, employer, and trainer.

Assessments are conducted using various methods including written, performance tasks and supporting documentation. All assessments are done on the job to complement the training delivery style.

Gold Star Child Care Training can assist to make anyone’s child care dreams come true.

Our joy is working with you to meet your goals.
