What is a Unit of Competency?

A unit of competency specifies the knowledge and skills, and the ability to apply those skills to a standard expected within the National Quality Framework of the Childcare industry.

Students may be assessed by one or more of the following methods:

  • Observation – the completion of a specified task or set of procedures normally performed under close supervision, using a detailed checklist.
  • Oral questioning – a response is provided to a series of questions presented in order to demonstrate understanding of principles or reasoning behind the action taken.
  • Case study – an opportunity to display problem solving and decision making skills is provided in a simulated context.
  • Multiple choice – a question or incomplete statement followed by several options [usually 4 – 5] from which the trainee selects the appropriate answer/s.
  • Written short answer – a written response item consisting of a question/s with answers of a single word, a few words, a sentence, or a paragraph.
  • Or any other method outlined in the course information.

Students will be advised of the assessment methodology before training commences. The assessment policy and procedures for each course are detailed in the individual Course Booklets. Assessment items are marked “C” (competent), “UPK” (under pinning knowledge), and “NYC” (not yet competent). If a student is initially deemed NYC they will be able to resubmit their written work within a given time frame until the assessment is competent. (Please note that a fee for assessment will be charged after three NYC submissions).

If a student is deemed NYC they will only be re-assessed on the components initially determined as not yet competent.

Procedure for Issuing Certificates

Students will be issued with a certificate on completion. If the student completes only one or more units but not a complete qualification, a Statement of Attainment will be issued.

Before certification is issued the Chief Executive Officer and Director verifies competency has been properly assessed, all tasks completed and all fees paid. Once all is in order, the Chief Executive Officer issues the relevant qualification certificate.

When a student has completed their course and a certificate has been issued, the student’s file is archived. This file will always be available and easily accessed with the student’s individual reference number allowing their information to be accessed at any time.

Been through other training facilities and Kool Kids is both the best and most helpful one I’ve experienced. Highly recommend them to all looking into further studies!

Great layout on website- clear precise with the addition of marking criteria underneath the question that helps with finding the right answer.

Lovely helpful trainers with no amount of questions or enquires too much to ask of them. Nothing short of amazing and I was lucky enough to have both Vanessa and Alison. Completed my certificate 3 and not much longer to go through before also ticking off my diploma.

Kool Kids for my choice over all!!

Coming from retail and hospitality background, I was nervous to start my Diploma of Early Childcare and Education, however, once I started the online course, I instantly relaxed and knew that I had made the right decision. I had heard good things about Kool Kids training college which is why I chose to study with them, and once I began, I found it had the easiest online platform to navigate, with each assessment having set question areas such as case studies, practical aspects, and reflection questions to ensure you are gaining full knowledge and understanding of each assessment task. The trainers and centres make life and studying smooth and uncomplicated even when working full time, as everyone is happy to help and lend an ear when you need. Overall, I have absolutely loved studying with Kool Kids training college and have been so lucky to have such a great trainer like Amy to guide me through the process!

After finishing my diploma I can now thank KKTC for providing the best style of training possible - with everything online now it made it easier for me to prioritise certain parts of my assessments due to the way it is all set out. I will definitely be recommending KKTC to anyone wanting to study early childhood.

I have really enjoyed completing my diploma with Kool kids. I have found that my course was enjoyable and I had the most support from Michelle and Rhiannon. When I needed help it was only a message away for help. Rhiannon was very patient and understanding when I found some questions challenging. I 100% recommend Kool kids online training to anyone and I highly recommend Rhiannon as she was very patient with each student.

How understanding and supporting both Michelle and Rhiannon were, how much this training helped me to become the educator I am today

I recently completed my Diploma with Koolkids Training. After years of no study I was hesitant and nervous to sign up. However from the moment I touched base I was so impressed with the level of support and encouragement from my Trainer Alison who was always only a call or message away day or night. I would highly recommend Koolkids

Studying with KKTC is simple and trouble-free. The workload is set out in a way that is achievable without being overwhelming. The online platform used is easily accessible and straightforward, and I love having my trainer, Amy, making sure I understand everything I‘m learning about. She has been by my side since I started, and is super approachable and is always available to work with me.

As a mature age student taking on study with Kool Kids Training College for a new career path was very daunting but Alison and Bronwyn were amazing.  Their support, guidance, encouragement and friendship helped me to successfully complete my Diploma and achieve my goal of working with children.

Tara’s passion, flexibility and compassion, are some of the key factors that have made my Diploma studies so enjoyable and successful. I have received so much workplace support, even during the lockdown period, Tara supported me to achieve my goals. Kool Kids Training College is unlike anything else offered in Melbourne I highly recommend them, if you're looking for a trainer that genuinely cares about their students!
