All qualifications recognised by the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) are also recognised under the Victorian children's services legislation.
ACECQA is responsible for determining the qualifications required to be held by educators working in services operating under the
Education and Care Services National Law Act 2010 (National Law) and the
Education and Care Services National Regulations 2011 (National Regulations), including assessments of equivalence to approved qualifications.
ACECQA is responsible for publishing on its website lists of qualifications it has approved, including approved early childhood teaching qualifications, approved diploma level education and care qualifications and approved certificate III level education and care qualifications.
ACECQA is responsible for assessing qualifications, including foreign qualifications, for equivalence to the qualifications required to be held by educators. A person may also apply to ACECQA to assess a qualification for the purpose of approving this qualification under the National Law and Regulations.
