School-based Traineeships

ECTARC has many high school students studying the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care whilst they are working towards their secondary school certificate. Traineeships are a great way to commence training for a vocational qualification and earn a wage while completing the senior secondary certificate. ECTARC provides flexibility as a traineeship program can be commenced at any time of the year.
