College for Australian Early Childhood Educators (CAECE)
ACA Qld founded the College for Australian Early Childhood Educators (CAECE) in direct response to member feedback about the poor quality of training available in the early childhood sector. CAECE is a registered training organisation that prides itself on the ongoing support it offers to both students and workplace supervisors. CAECE delivers both the Certificate III and Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care, and offers discounted fees to ACA Qld members.
