KKTC are excited to be delivering the New Training Package for Early Childhood Education and Care in Queensland as of January 2022.
Kicking off the new year with a bang, KKTC is among the first RTOs to be approved to deliver the new CHC30121 Certificate III and CHC50121 Diploma with the support of Queensland Government Funding.
KKTC College Manager Sam Hendry is delighted to be offering the new qualifications this year, as he encourages all people looking to study to “reach for the stars” in 2022.

The new qualifications are an ambitious step upwards for the Early Childhood sector, with an updated structure and altered packaging rules.
