Get ready for the new Child Care Package by participating in one of the upcoming information sessions hosted by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.

Information sessions will be held across Australia from 23 February to 28 March 2018.

The sessions are aimed at Centre Directors and Administrators to help them understand the changes and what the new ‘business-as-usual’ requirements will be once the new Package is fully implemented from 2 July 2018.

In addition to face-to-face sessions in each capital city and Alice Springs, there will be interactive webcasts for those who cannot attend a face-to-face session.

Each face-to-face session will run for three hours, while three webcast modules will make up the content of one face-to-face session. You can participate in all three webcasts, or you can choose the module(s) of most interest to you. More information on the webcast modules is available on the registration page.

See below for a schedule of the face-to-face and webcast sessions.
