IRC membership details are updated each quarter.
The Children's Education and Care IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to Early Childhood Educator and Education Aide job roles. These job roles provide education, care, support and assistance in a range of educational settings including independent schools and community settings.
These qualifications are included in the CHC Community Services Training Package.
The IRC will consult widely during any future training package development process providing opportunity for any interested parties to make a contribution.
Technical Advisory Committees may also be established to inform future work, utilising a broad range of stakeholders with technical and specific industry knowledge.
The Children's Education and Care IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, SkillsIQ. For more information visit SkillsIQ.
Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
