Training & Professional Development

For over 20 years, ECTARC has been a leading provider of early childhood professional development to educators, management and owners of services through Australia. Current, practical and relevant training is delivered by our trainers who hold training and early childhood qualification and also have many years experience working on-the-floor in early childhood services.  ECTARC also manages 11 early childhood services in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven areas of NSW and our trainers work closely with service management and staff to ensure dynamic content is delivered to address challenges and future needs.

NESA Webinars

PLEASE NOTE: On 30th November 2020, the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) announced that all accredited Professional Development endorsements have been cancelled for all Providers and courses. ECTARC will work to re-submit for endorsement current training for all our relevant training courses once applications re-open in 2021. We will provide further updates as this process takes place, but please provide your Teacher Accreditation number on registration if you are working towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
