Migration Pathways through Early Childhood Education

Migration Pathways through Early Childhood Education Early childhood (pre-primary school) education is a promising career in the Australian skilled migration setting. The governing body responsible for the skill assessment of the individuals aspiring to be recognized educators in pre-primary schools is the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL). AITSL criteria of assessing early childhood teachers are twofold and it is essential that all the applicants adhere to both these criteria. Criteria One
  • You must complete a minimum of 4 years of full-time education at a higher education level.
  • The candidate must study a minimum of 4 years at a Bachelors level or higher. 
  • 1 out of the 4 years of study must be in the field of early childhood education and be done at a bachelor’s level or higher. (you do not need to have studied early childhood education for all 4 years) 
  • Additionally, the candidate must complete 45 days of supervised teaching with students from birth to 8 years of age. 
Other higher education qualification/s contributing to the four years of study must be comparable to the educational level of an Australian Advanced Diploma/Associate Degree (Australian Qualifications Framework Level 6) or higher. It should be noted that AITSL does not assess short courses (less than one-year full-time study), professional development programs or incomplete qualifications.   Criteria Two Criteria two relates to the applicant’s English language proficiency. It should be demonstrated by ONE of the following.
  1. Having completed at least four years of study, Bachelors level or higher in countries including Australia, Canada, the Republic of Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom or the United States of America OR
  2. The other way of providing evidence of English language proficiency is through International English Language Testing System (IELTS) candidates must achieve.
