Ever wanted to travel and work in Australia? Thinking of doing a gap year but don’t know how to plan it? Want to live by the beach for the summer time? Make your dreams a reality! Expect A Star is a recruitment agency based throughout Australia that operates solely within the early childhood industry. We are always recruiting for casual (relief or supply) staff members to work at different nurseries, preschools, childcare centres and long day care centres in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.
We’ve all heard Australia is expensive, but you will be able to afford to live (and save to travel). The pay rate is from £15 to £21.20 per hour. Early Childcare Educators is a skill that is in demand and a number of roles feature on the government skills shortage list. To be eligible to work in Australia:
Valid visa with work rights
A qualification in early childhood education that has been assessed by the Australian Children's Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA)
A Working with Children’s Check for the state in which you are working (you can only apply once you are living here.)
At least 3 months of paid professional experience in the early childhood settings
Many UK qualifications e.g. Diploma Level 3 CACHE have already been assessed to work across Australia.
To find out if your qualification is pre-approved to work in Australia, visit the following link: http://www.acecqa.gov.au/Qualifications.aspx . For more information on how to have your qualification assessed by ACECQA if it is not pre-approved, visit this link: http://www.acecqa.gov.au/Assessment-of-equivalent-early-childhood-educator-qualifications .
You have multiple options, but the most popular is the Working Holiday Visa which all UK citizens under 30 can apply for (soon to be extended to 35). The enables you to work and travel in Australia for 1 year (can be extended to 2 years).
